A quick chat with Ethan Moon , SR1 (Chamblee): 
1.  Where do you go to school?  I go to Wesleyan School and my favorite class is English.
2.  How do you balance academics and athletics?  Any tips for achieving success in both?
I'm happy that I swim because it has definitely taught me how to manage my time. When I'm struggling to do both swimming and school, I just think of Coach Beth telling me, "find a way to get it done," and just do it. Pro tip: don't procrastinate your work (and if you're a senior, don't wait to do college apps until the day before the deadline).
3.  What colleges are you looking at?  Do you know what you want to major in or have as a career?
I'm not sure what I want to do but I'm looking at UGA, GT, UNC, UVA, Dartmouth, Duke, and Georgetown.
4.  How do you prepare for busy times of the academic year (finals, statewide testing, etc.) in regards to swimming?
I don't think it's healthy to force yourself to sit in my room and study/rest. It makes me lazy. On the other hand, exercise keeps the body alert, so I'm always at practice during exams, standardized testing, etc. 
5.  Is there a particular coach that especially motivates you or something specific that any of your coaches has said or does to motivate you?Coach Sam was my first senior-group coach and I wouldn't still be swimming if it weren't for him. He taught me above all else, swimming is about having fun. :)
6.  How do you prepare for meets? 
I have a routine; here it is: The day before, I drink lots of water. When I wake up the morning of the meet, I have 3 shots of espresso, and some peanut butter pretzels. I consume one muffin throughout prelims. In between sessions, I take a power nap after reading the first chapter of Legacy by James Kerr (thanks Coach Beth). Before finals, some gatorade and stretching. After finals, pasta. <3
7.  Do you have any specific swimming goals in the next 12 months? 
I want to swim in college so it would be cool if I could walk-on wherever I choose to go.
8.  What do you wish you realized about swimming when you were 12 years old?  
When I was 12 I still did other sports. I wish I realized that I should swim full-time when I was younger because I didn't start taking swimming seriously until I was 14 years old (freshman year).
9.  Favorite book you've read lately or favorite musical artist right now? 
David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcom Gladwell. Everyone who knows how to read should read this book.  Sensational.
Together We Roll
Please take a few minutes to watch this video, profiling Kyle and Brent Pease.  You will be inspired and amazed by the bond between the brothers and their mission to provide resources and opportunities for others living with disabilities and to help them know that anything is possible!
