Swimmers of the Month - November

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

Swimmer, Group
Recognized By
Reason
Alayna Brooker, Senior 3 
Coach Perchinske
Alayna has maintained one of the highest practice attendances on the Team this fall.  She has attended multiple meets (including CCS, OLY, and HS Preview) and has swum several Life Time and In-Season Bests.  In practice, she is coachable, demonstrates a strong work ethic, and embodies what it means to be a good Teammate.  In short, Alayna is a stellar addition to the Senior Groups. 
Giovanna Rosko, Age Group 2
Coach Kevin
Through the first several meets Gia has swum events (400 IM and 500 Free) that she previously considered outside of her ability.  Her willingness to step outside of her comfort zone indicates a positive growth mindset and a willingness to push herself to get better.  Way to go Gia!
Preston Duncan, Developmental 2
Coach Chris 
Preston did an amazing job at the Swim-A-Thon. He completed 100 laps, which is 30 more than anyone else in any of the developmental groups, and more even than many of the Senior kids. He showed a very impressive drive an determination through this feat.
Jessie Zhang, Developmental 3
Coach Doug
Jessie is a lane leader, quietly works hard in dryland and water practices, and has applied that quiet passion towards achieving her best times across all her strokes.  She works through stroke and technique changes while not getting caught up in things that distract other swimmers in practices. 
Kelsey Krizansky, Age Group 1
Coach Cassidy
Kelsey has been a great leader.  She has been extremely helpful and welcoming to new swimmers and helps them to find their heat and lanes at meets.  She is a great Teammate and growing into being a great leader! 
Braydon Presley, Pre-Comp
Coach Fredy 
Brayden has shown much promise from the very  beginning. He listens well, and has demonstrated great attention to detail during drills and other instruction.
