From the Sideline

“Nate has been on the swim team for the last three years. Last year he made it to state individually as well as was a contributing member on relays. This year he has won first place in the state for the 50 Free. Nate is the kind of swimmer that instantly improves and is super coachable. He takes it all in and continues to get better and better. Nate is also such a great young man. He is captain of the team as a junior and has really stepped up to make sure all of his teammates feel valued.”
