You are in rare water being a part of Beach Cities Swimming!
This morning, USA Swimming named the 2018-19 USA Swimming National Junior Team, and our very own Alex Crisera is on that list! Alex is one of 21 high schoolers to be named and one of 35 women named to the team. It was her 100 Back (1:00.89) at Junior Nationals this summer that made the list. That time would have been good enough for a second and slivers from a third swim at the 2016 Olympic Trials!!
Beach Cities Swimming is one of 52 USA Swimming clubs represented!
Mitch Dalton, USA Swimming National Team Director said, "(this) is a testament to the incredible dedication and work being done at the club level around the United States." And that is where our very own Coach Monique comes in; she is listed on the 2018-19 National Junior Team Coach list! She is one of 9 female coaches to make the coaching roster.
This is our first (and definitely worth celebrating), but let's not make it our last!
Congratulations Alex, Coach Monique and all of Beach Cities Swimming! None of this is possible without the dedication and commitment from our coaches, parents, and athletes. This demonstrates that hard work pays off! Keep it up Beach Cities! GO USA SWIMMING!
