Swimmer of the Month

September-->  Mackenzie Swope

The swimmer of the month for September Mackenzie Swope. Mackenzie had a good summer, but has been training at a much higher level since the beginning of the season. Keep up the great work.  

October-->  McKinley Munk

The swimmer of the month for October is McKinley Munk. McKinley has been working very hard this year on trying to make A times to compete at A Champs. She pushes herself at practice and is working on being more aggressive there. Since joining us in March, she has made big improvements in her stroke technique and endurance. Keep up the good work. 

November-->  Garrett Luze

The swimmer of the month for November is Garrett Luze. Garrett swam 3 individuals at A Champs and came away with major drops in all 3 races. He dropped 2 seconds in the 50 Fr, 10 in the 200 Fr, and 7 in the 100 Br. A true testament to all the hard work he has been putting in. Keep up the good work Garrett. 

December-->  Caleb Terschak

The Swimmer of the Month for December is Caleb Terschak. Caleb has been putting in more intensity into his workouts, and his practices have been looking very good. It will be fun to see how he does at his Senior Champs meet. Keep up the hard work, it works.

January-->  Ryan Joehl

The swimmer of the month for January is Ryan Joehl. Ryan has been one of the most consistent swimmers in the group all year. He is always at practice and sets a great example for the rest of the group. Ryan made his first Sectional Cut in the 200 Back at Sr. Champs. Congrats and keep pushing forward. 

February--> Olivia Dolan

The swimmer of the month for February was Olivia Dolan. Olivia has been swimming with NP since mid-December. Since then, she has taken every challenge head on. Sometimes with a push, but she has been swimming very hard at practice and has made a lot of improvements in her times. Keep up the great work.

March--> Sidney Durbin

Our swimmer of the month for March is Sidney Durbin. Although we did not have a lot of training in the month of March, Sidney had an incredible Sectional meet where she took 6 seconds off of a cut she made a month before in the 200 Br. She also made finals in her first Sectional meet, an impressive achievement.

April--> ​Erica Mock

The swimmer of the month for April is Erica Mock. Erica has done a great job recently of putting herself on the faster intervals. She is trying to push herself more and that will undoubtedly lead to her future success. Keep up the great work Erica.

May-->  George Tambassis

The swimmer of the month for May is George Tambassis. George has been a mostly quiet addition to NP, but his RecPlex meet was anything but. He swam incredibly well and dropped tons of time in almost every event. He has also been doing a great job at practice and proving himself on tough intervals. Keep up the good work.

Other Notes

We will be using Twitter again this year for practice updates and changes. This is the best way to change or cancel practice at the last minute and make sure that everyone knows about it. When you sign up properly for mobile notifications, you will get a text message sent to your phone with the updates. I will still send out emails for larger chunks of information, but I can do Twitter from my phone anywhere, I can only send the emails from a computer. Please logon to Twitter, create an account, and follow NPUpdates.

You can always get in touch with me by email at harrisonsean@prcommunityed.org. I check my email daily usually so you can expect a response within a day or so.  Or by phone at the office Mondays and Wednesdays from 11-4 at 636-891-6633.
