Thanks to Laura's talent, hard work, and dedication, and Coach Bob's nuanced, patient, and balanced coaching, Veteran Islander Laura Fornshell has achieved the pinnacle in California high school swimming by qualifying to complete in the 500 Yard Freestyle at the 2016 CIF State Swimming Championships to be held May 20-21 at the Clovis Olympic Swim Complex at Clovis West High School in Clovis.
Fornshell qualified at the NCS Championships with a blistering time of 4:58.36, placing first in her final. Congratulations to Laura, and to Coach Bob who tapered all of the Islander high school swimmers perfectly for their 2016 league and NCS campaigns. Go Laura!!
