What is your favorite part of being on the swim team?

“My favorite part of being on the team is the friendships I have made along the way and spending time with people I actually enjoy.”

What’s one thing you won’t miss when you graduate and what is something you will miss?

How do you plan to improve your skill in swimming?

“I am diving year-round; after high school season is over, I dive at a club, and at the end of summer, I am going to Missouri State to continue my athletic career.”
