Swimmer of the Month {Zac}

Zachary = September Swimmer of the Month

Zachary re-joined the club swim team last spring to train and prepare for his senior varsity swim season this winter.   Passionate and determined to improve his times and techniques, Zac's taken up residence at the local pool, working out twice a day on many days.  Praise came his way this week in the form of 'swimmer of the month' award.  Sweet job, Zachary!

Zac stepped up and filled a leadership role that was missing at the beginning of the season. His attendance was the highest of any BBST athlete during September. Zac is one of the first swimmers in the water each day. He leads by example, working hard, being respectful of the staff and the facility, and exemplifying what it means to be a ‘Blackfish’.

Zac has shown how attendance directly correlates to results, as he is swimming close to his best times in practice each week. His confidence is growing, his technique is improving, and he has been doing an amazing job.

Zac is on track for a very successful year. It is easy to predict his success, as he is working hard every day, attending practice, and actively working to improve.
