My name is Ellis McGraw, and I love competitive swimming. I embrace the hard work that goes into being a successful swimmer and a great teammate. I wasn’t a naturally gifted swimmer when I first started to swim for my club. I started on the lowest level of HSA, and worked to get to the highest group we have. Along the way, I’ve always taken great pride in showing good sportsmanship to my teammates and competitors. I’d like to continue this arc of excellence in my scholastic and swimming endeavors when I go to college. The comradery of being on a swim team and the collegiate experience is something I greatly look forward to.
