Jordan Hanson swims both Varsity and Junior Varsity events. She’s a Norwalk student athlete who’s made the trip to Lincoln High School every morning and afternoon for practice for four straight seasons.

Coach’s Comments: “Jordan has grown as a swimmer during her four years on the team. I’m glad to see Jordan stick with it and continue to adapt to the sport. This skill has been key for her as the team continues to diversify, causing her role on the squad to change from year to year. No doubt, that same flexibility will help her in the future as she tackles college and everything to follow.”
