Hi, my name is Aryn! I was born and raised in Ashwaubenon.
I’ve been surrounded by water my whole life. From swim lesson
to swimming on ASC and the high school team. My favorite stroke is
Backstroke! During high school I started teaching swim lessons and
lifeguarding and continued while in college. After high school, I
attended Grand Valley State University, where I graduated with
a degree in Math and Statistics. In college I joined our
university’s swim club, where I swam for 5 years and was in
leadership positions for 2. Some things I enjoy are reading,
camping, playing any sports and of course, swimming!
Claudia has been an ASC Swimmer and AHS Swimmer for all of her
swimming career.. She is a college sophmore in the art
education program at St. Norbert's College. She stays in the
water regularly with the Ashwaubenon Masters group and loves math
Hi, my name is Jackson. I am a junior at Ashwaubenon High School
and have been have been swimming with ASC since 5th grade. I
specialize in distance freestyle and placed 6th in the 200 and 500
at High School State. I am also a lifeguard at the
pool. My favorite part about swimming is the friendly
competition at practice and I hope to pass on what I know
about swimming to the younger swimmers so they can improve and
enjoy swimming like I do.
