(2005/2006) This year I have been working more on my mid-distance events. I am at 1:00:12 in my 100 back but hope to break 1:00 before the season is over.
At GMC (County Championships) I placed 4th in the 100 back and I placed 5th in the 200 IM. I am not a strong breaststroker and have been working hard on that stroke.
In addition I have qualified for JO's in the 50 free (22.83) and the 200 fly (2:13.30).
This year I have qualified for States in the 100 back, 100 fly and 200 free, 200 IM, 200 Fly and 50 free.
At NJ High School State Championships where our team took 1st place, (St. Joes, Metuchen), I swam the 50 Free in 22.83. In addition, I swam the 200 FR, 1st leg, in 22.9, and the 400 Free, 2nd leg, in 50.30.
I am hoping to qualify nationally and for sectionals in the 50 free this year. I have a couple of more opportunites to do so.
(2004/2005)I placed 1st in the NJ Y Silvers Championships in the 100 free. I placed 2nd in the 50 free. I placed 2nd in the 200 free.
I qualified for states in all of the above
In my freshman year I came in 3rd in the 50 fly at the Eastern States Invitational in Long Island NY.
I was 1 of only 3 freshman to make Varsity swimming in a very competitive St. Joes program in my freshman year there.
In addition, I qualified for Y Long Course Nationals in Baltimore in my relays and am very close to making some individual cuts as well as of 6/05.
On the high school level, my St. Joes team went to the State Finals and we lost by 2 points this year. However, my coach set a time for me to reach in my events and I achieved those times and contributed what I was supposed to that day. In addition, we dominate that meet and have won 20 years in a row. We hope to take that back next year, and I hope to make a significant contribution to that endeavor.
I have only been swimming seriously for 3 years and have dropped significant time from my events. For example, I started the 2004/2005 season with a 58 second 100 free, and by February dropped to 51.78. I started my 50 free at 26 and droped to 22.53. I started my 200 free at 2:17.3 and dropped it to 153.32 by Feb. I am proud of those drops and believe that I have only scratched the surface of my potential. With hard work in the upcoming seasons, I know that I can take my swimming far. I hope that you can recognize my potential. Imagine where I will be in 4 years time. Hopefully, right up there with the best of them. I have catching up to do, but I like swimming "under the radar".
I received the "most improved swimmer" award in both my Sophomore season in high school and from my Y club for the 2004/2005 season.
