Hello, my name is Charli Geary and I am 12 years old. I am currently a 7th grader attending William Annin Middle School, where I also run Cross-Country and am part of the Peer Leader program. I've been doing triathlons for the past 4 years and absolutely love the tri-sport challenge!
This is my first year at the Berkeley Aquatic Club joining the Junior 1 group, as we just moved here from Cincinnati, OH where I swam with the Mason Manta Rays (Go Carson Foster!). I started swimming when I was 5 years old, swimming for 7 years with the Rays to achieve several Ohio Junior Olympics time standards for 10-U and 11-12, and I also swam with my Madeira Marlins Summer League for the past 4 years earning age group high point each year. My favorite swimming memories were the Rays ' travel trip to Greensboro North Carolina, navigating an inflatable obstacle course while swimming in the London Olympic Pool, and attending the University of Louisville Challenge Swim Camp this past summer. Outside of the water, I have been playing piano since I was four and created four original compositions. I love to read, spend time with friends and family, travel and eat delicious food. I am loving New Jersey and excited to be part of the Berkeley Aquatic Club. Cheers to a fast season and new friends!
