#RAW – February 13, 2017 – Danielle Ekstrand, Pippi Thompson, Julia Doak, and Emma Obrien

Danielle Ekstrand, Pippi Thompson, Julia Doak, and Emma Obrien are Rebel Athletes of the Week. Each athlete is an integral part of our Swim and Dive program. This season, they swam together on the 200 Medley relay. From the beginning of the season, they were determined to qualify for State. Their hard work definitely paid off- at the Championship League Meet their relay got 3rd overall and qualified for State by .01!

 

They are not just talented athletes, but are also leaders in our program. One of their goals this season was to create more team unity by organizing social events outside of the pool. Each of the girls contributed to making that goal a reality. Thanks to their hard work, our team is closer than it has ever been. In practice, the girls motivate their teammates by encouraging them to get through tough work outs. At meets, they are always cheering and supporting each other. Each athlete is not only committed to improving individually, but they are also committed to expanding and improving the program. I am truly fortunate to be their coach. – Jordan Allen, Head Girl’s Swim Coach
