The 2019 Alaska Junior Olympics was full of great swims from the top competitors in the state. MSST was well represented and all the swimmers did great! One swim in particular exemplified what it means to be an MSST swimmer: Persistence, Determination, and Unbreakable Spirit in the face of adversity. The13-14 girls 400 free relay brought together the powerhouse quartet of Sam Bristor, Avery Hafele, Lillie Mock and Asyia Shank. The night before, the girls got 2nd in the 200 free relay missing the win by .01. Through their unbreakable spirits (and some great coaching...) the girls rallied and came back the next night winning the 4x100 free relay over Anchorage Swim Club, and Stingray Swim Team. Their teamwork made the swim the MSST Swim of the Meet. Way to go girls!!!!
