I'm a 4.0 GPA student with AP classes maintaining first honors. I was selected to be in the National Honors Society by the faculty at my school. I was also selected to be a Diocesan Scholar. I received an award for the best scholar-athlete in my whole junior class at my school (Father Judge High School).
I started swimming with my grade school in sixth grade but they only practiced twice a week for 45 minutes so it was basically like a warm up. I then joined Lower Moreland Swimming and Diving (club team) my freshman year. I had two different coaches freshman and sophomore year and both got fired because they weren't fit for the position. I really just got my first real coach this year and managed to drop a lot of time. I dropped over a second in my 50 free this year, going a 22.1 but I went a 21.02 relay split. In the 100 free I dropped about 4 seconds this year with a 47.85. My 200 free is now a 1:47.24. The 100 back I dropped almost 6 seconds and qualified for states with a 53.13. My 200 back I dropped about 8 seconds now with a 1:58.26. Those were all of my time drops just this year. At the Philadelphia Catholic League Championship meet, I earned first team All-Catholic in the 100 free, 200 medley relay (I swam back), and 200 free relay. I also received second team All-Catholic in the 50 free. My sophomore year I was assistant captain and junior year I was captain. I was already named captain for next year (senior year).
When I am not at a meet on Saturday's I volunteer at an organization called Fox Chase CHAMPS. Fox Chase CHAMPS is an organization for mentally challenged children and young adults.
