From the Sideline

“Antonio achieved a state qualifying time (in the 500 freestyle) at last Thursday’s swim meet. Antonio is not a year-round swimmer and achieving a state qualifying time, the first time he swam it this year, is a true testament to his work ethic. His hard work and determination throughout the off-season really got him into shape for this upcoming swim season. The sky is the limit on Antonio’s potential and it’s going to be exciting to see as he progresses this season.” — Coach Roger Miron
