Congrats to Kaitlyn Fox on getting the Golden Bobble at DGS. Kaitlyn is a junior on the team and has been working her butt off at practice. She is doing a great job and it showed at that meet when she went her best in season time in her 500 free. Kaitlyn is a teammate that never sits out and always puts her all in and her teammates are noticing. Kaitlyn has constantly improved in the 500 over the past 3 years and this year is no exception. Great job, Kaitlyn!
Congratulations to Nancy Obrzut on being the 1st Golden Bobble winner of this season. Nancy comes to the team this year as a 9th grader who has a boat load of potential. Nancy has shown her skill thus far in several events but has been especially aggressive and skillful in the 50 free. She impressed the team with a 26 split at the tail end of the 200 Medley Relay at her first meet. This was a by far a best time that shocked even her. Nancy has since swam 27s in a few races that show her lightening fast swim was not just a fluke. Great work, Nancy, and keep rocking those Crocs.
Maria Briseno is the Golden Bobble Award winner for the Hinsdale South meet. Maria is a recent addition to the AT-WB swim team as she also within the last year just moved here from Mexico. Maria is such an enthusiastic and hard-working young lady. She joined the team this year during her junior year and has been working tirelessly which has shown up in the pool and at dry-land. During the Hinsdale South meet, Maria swam the 50 and 100 freestyle where she dropped over 10 seconds combined. Her enthusiasm when she saw her times was such a fun moment for all of her teammates.
Congratulations to Cassidy Paul on winning the Golden Bobble Award for Proviso's meet. Cassidy has overall just dropped second after second this season. She has really tapped into her talent this year and proven to be such a great asset to our team. Cassidy brings such a great attitude and work ethic to the team. Nice work Cassidy. We can't wait to see what you do at our championship meets.
Estefani Karasek is the winner of our golden bobble award for the Downers Grove South swim meet. Estefani had an amazing meet dropping nearly 10 seconds. This is truly because of her hard work in the pool every day. As Coach Forsberg says, "when she is missing, her presence is so missed." This is because she is the biggest cheerleader on the pool deck and one of the best teammates out there. Thanks for being such a bright spot on our team Estefani!
Congratulations to Anna Christiansen on winning the golden bobble at our meet versus Vernon Hills. Anna has had an awesome season so far going lifetime bests in her 50 free, 200 IM, and overall just swimming her heart out. Anna is working so hard to perfect her strokes and kills it every morning at our dry-land training. She is a great role model and awesome athlete. Congratulations Anna! You are what ATWB is all about.
Sabrina came to the ATWB swim team as a Sophomore this year and we are so happy to have her! So far Sabrina has moved up from swimming with the JV & Frosh/Soph lanes to the Varsity lanes and actually was recorded going her fastest 50 free time at practice by Coach Forsberg just last week. Sabrina is also a vocal leader at dry-land and on the pool deck. She has embraced the spirit of ATWB and for that reason, she received the Golden Bobble award after her swims at Riverside Brookfield. Way to go Sabrina. Coach Forsberg and Coach Murphy can't wait to see all of your talent unfold over the next two months!
