JonDavid Bulford is the December FISH of the Month
JonDavid Bulford is a nine-year-old Age Group swimmer who has a great work ethic and team spirt. During the first week of December, “JD” made his first JO Qualifying time in the 50 back at Christmas Champs. JonDavid had a great swim in the prelim session and tied for the second alternate position. As a result, he had a swim off in which he dropped more time, won, and made his qualifying time. JonDavid’s attendance during the month of December was stellar. He made every practice during the holiday practice period and worked extremely hard! During the holiday practice time trials, JonDavid supported his teammates by cheering loudly for them.
