Hi, my name is Marisa Mamak and I am a sophomore at The Mary Louis Academy. I am a proud teammate on my high school varsity team as well as on the Long Island Aquatic Club. Swimming has played a crucial role in shaping who I am today. Throughout the years I continue to learn that persistence and a goal-getter attitude contribute to my success in and out of the water. Even outside the pool, swimming has taught me many lessons which have contributed to my character. I have learned the importance of organization, the meaning of dedication, and the experience in being a teammate. I have grown to love this sport and everything that it has given me. I look forward to continuing to grow as an athlete and student in college.
