From the Sideline

“Henry achieved his very first state qualifying time (in the 100 breaststroke) at the Dec. 4 swim meet. Henry is not a year-round swimmer and actually learned how to do the breaststroke two years ago as a freshman on the LHS boys swim team. Henry’s hard work and determination throughout the off-season really got him into shape for this swim season. Achieving a state time, in the first meet of the swim season is a huge accomplishment for him. This is just the beginning for Henry, we’re expecting great things from him this season.”

— Coach Roger Miron
