Swimmers of the Month - June

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

Alexandra Scharpf, Senior 3

Coach Perchinske

Alexandra Scharpf is the SR Group Swimmer of the Month. Alex comes to practice every day ready to work hard. I regularly put her in the distance group and ask her to swim IM while everyone else is swimming free. She NEVER complains. Alex has a strong understanding of the big picture and knows that her efforts must match her goals. Alex recently participated in the Holtrey meet. She PRd in 200 IM, 200 Breast (Sectional cut), 200 Free, 400 IM, 50 Free, and 200 Back! Way to go, Alex!!!

Nora Smith and Matias Gonzalez, Developmental 1 and b

Coach Nikki

Swimmer of the month Dev 1a: Nora Smith! Nora has a can-do attitude, and is always eager to get in the pool. She is one of the youngest in Dev. 1a, but is never deterred by the older swimmers. Nora has great turnover in her freestyle and backstroke, and is continuing to improve her kick. It has been so fun to watch her confidence grow throughout the past two months. She has even challenged Coach Forrest to a butterfly race! Nora has been doing a great job, and we know she will continue to grow as a swimmer!

Swimmer of the month Dev 1b: Matias Gonzalez! Matias has shown great improvement over the past month, and had an awesome first meet! He is an excellent listener, and always tries to immediately implement feedback. His freestyle and backstroke are strong, but he is a natural breaststroker! It has been so fun to watch Matias start leading the lane and showing off his skills for the other swimmers. Great job, Matias!

Coach Forrest


Calem Zurowski, Pre-Competitive

Coach Grace

The Pre-Competitive swimmer of the month is Calem Zurowski! Calem has been working hard from the get-go of the season, he always makes corrections right when and has been a great role model for the rest of the group. Calem always shows up with a smile on his face and ready to swim (especially when we do backstroke). Way to go Calem, just keep swimming!
