July FISH of the Month

Ariadne Wiley-Jimenez

Congratulations to Ariadne (Ari) Wiley-Jimenez, the July FISH of The Month!

After capping off an incredible 2019 – 2020 winter season that included dropping 149.18 seconds and swimming with a broken hand, Ari Wiley-Jimenez has continued to impress her coaches with her hard work, dedication and improvement.

Ari has had near-perfect practice attendance this summer and has taken advantage of her time in the pool.  Not only has she continued to improve her stroke technique and turns, she loves to be challenged in practices and relishes her success!  At the beginning of this summer, it was extremely difficult for Ari to break the 1-minute barrier in the 50 free during a training set.  Ari now consistently swims her 50’s under the 1-minute mark and likes to race the older swimmers.  During Thursday’s practice last week, Ari pushed herself to swim a 46 second 50 free during a tough set of 50s!  In addition, Ari has been working hard to improve her butterfly.  Her efforts have been rewarded with an 8 second drop in the 25 fly!

The FISH coaching staff is proud of Ari and we are looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes during the 2020 – 2021 season.
