We’d like to introduce our final senior in the Meet The Seniors series – Sheila Spahiu. If you weren’t able to attend Senior Night, these posts offer a great chance for all of our fans to see what wonderful young ladies help lead our team.
Sheila is a foreign exchange student from Albania. She has been a member of the team since the start of school this year. She lives with her host family in Norwalk and attends Norwalk High School. She also swam in Albania while growing up and wanted to give high school swimming in America a try!
Years on the team: 1 year
Favorite Part of Being on the Swim Team: Feeling good about swimming while in another country with American girls. The girls are fantastic and have made my two months here more beautiful. They’ve given be courage and helped me a lot.
Coach’s Comments: “Sheila is our first foreign exchange student on the swim team. It’s been a pleasure getting to know her, her host family and to learn more about Albania. I’m glad she’s enjoyed her time with us and know the other girls have benefited culturally from having her on the team. ”
-Brayton Weber, Head Coach
Future Plans: Attending a university for medicine
