Elsa’s swimming story: My experience swimming with YNS will always hold a special place in my heart. I have met so many amazing people through the team that will be my lifelong friends. I have learned how to push myself to my limits and I have learned that I can only achieve my goals if I work hard for them.

One of my best memories from swimming with the team was when I made New Englands for the first time. For a lot of swimmers, they make New Englands when they are in the younger age groups, but I made it for the first time when I was a freshman. While I was swimming my qualifying race, all of my friends were cheering me on and when I made it we all celebrated together. They were so supportive and it just made me feel so much more excited for the meet.

I'm hoping to continue swimming in the future even if it might not be for my college team. I am hoping to join a club team in college and continue my swimming career. I really fell in love with the sport and it means a lot to me. I will never give it up.
