Abby has been a varsity member of the Lincoln High School team for four years, and swam on the middle school and club teams prior to that. Her older sister was also a member of the girls team, plus her father swam for the Lincoln Mens team in high school as well. Abby has been the lead off swimmer for the 200 medley relay since joining the team, and has qualified to the state meet each of her first three seasons. Abby also swims the 100 backstroke, 50 free, and earned her sub 60 t-shirt last year in the 100 free at the regional meet.
Years on the team: 4 years
Years spent swimming: 8 years
Biggest Swimming Accomplishment: Breaking the school record in the 200 medley relay at the state meet as a junior.
Favorite Win: Beating Hoover in 2012!
Message For the Team: The early mornings are tough, and the workouts will get you down sometimes, but stick it out, work hard, and it will pay off at the regional meet!
Coach’s Comments: “It has been fun watching Abby come in as a freshman and deal with all the pressure of leading off our top relay each and every year. There has been some down times, and some up times, but Abby continues to do her best to push both behind her and focus on the here and now. That school record last year was huge, it showed that hard work does pay off, and I can’t wait to see what she does at the end of the senior year.”
Future Plans: Attending ISU for college.
