Congratulations to Abbey Nardella, Chinook, on her nomination to the U.S. PARALYMPIC team that competed in Lima,Peru,  August 23-September 1, 2019.  Swimming in the classification S6-SB6-SM6,  Abbey represented the U.S. and PNS well, winning bronze in the 100 breaststroke and placing in the top 8 in her other 5 events.  She set 2 personal best times in the 100 free and 100 backstroke setting the stage for a good 9 months of training going into the U.S PARALYMPIC trials and Tokyo 2020.
