Years on the team: 4 years

Years spent swimming: Total of 8 years, from YMCA swimming to Lincoln Swimming

Biggest Swimming Accomplishment: Hitting a :26 off the blocks in the 50 free as a junior at the regional meet.

Favorite Win: Beating Hoover as a junior.

Olivia2Coach’s Comments: “Olivia has turned in to one of the hardest working kids I have ever coached, both during the season and in the off season. She has made an effort since the beginning of her junior year to be a leader on this team, and as a team we have been lucky to have her work ethic and motivation. I hope all of this proves to be worth it as a senior, with a trip to Marshalltown and swimming in the state pool!”

-Brayton Weber, Head Coach

Additional High School Activities: Track, National Council of Youth Leadership (NCYL)

Future Plans: Hasn’t made a choice yet, but will be at a 4 year college, possibly Iowa or Iowa State.

Last comments: Work hard! It is much more fun to work hard and win, rather then be lazy and lose!Seniors4
