Swimmers of the Month - February

Coaches recognize swimmers monthly based on one or more of the following categories: Participation and Effort, Passion, Leadership, and Achievement.  

Josh Rooney, Senior Group
Coach Perchinske
Josh came back to the Stars this past summer/fall.  Since that time, he has grown by leaps and bounds.  Josh is an introspective, inquisitive, and focused swimmer...a true student of the sport.  His hard work has enabled him to move up a sendoff gorup.  Additionally, Josh is one of the most polite young men that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  He and his parents should be proud. 

Julia-Marie Cooch, Age Group

Coach Kevin
Julia-Marie is my age group swimmer of the month.  She has shown tremendous growth in her training habits. She is starting to push herself harder on sets and also is focusing on making changes to her strokes permanent.  She has become more competitive when we do fast speed work or fun things like relays. These are all huge changes that will set her up well for middle school season this year. Congrats, JM!

Sam Kim, Age Group 

Coach Chris 
Sam has attended almost every practice and gives consistent effort in his swims. His excellent work ethic has resulted in improvements to his technique and strength in the water. 
Kaylee May; Developmental 2 and Emmie Cooch, Developmental 1b
Coach Cassidy
Kaylee has been working hard during our time at the outdoor pool.  She always listens to feedback and tries to make changes in her strokes to become a better swimmer.  Kaylee is helpful to her teammates and is a natural leader!  Keep up the hard work!!
Emmie has been taking advantage of time to swim at practice and outside of practice.  Her hard work has made her a stronger swimmer.  She comes to every practice with a positive attitude and is always kind to other swimmers in her group.  Great job, Emmie!
Breyland Partee, Developmental 3 Coach Fredy

Breeland Partee is the Dev 3 Swimmer of the Month. Breeland has seen tremendous improvement over the summer. Over the past month his intensity and consistency of effort and focus have been extraordinary. His free, fly, breast, and IM have really improved, and soon his backstroke will be on the same level. Congratulations Breyland.
