Michelle Ramirez earned the Golden Goggles award by swimming her way to two season best times at the DGS dual meet on Thursday. Michelle cut almost 19 seconds off of her 500 free time, and 8 seconds off of her 200 IM. Michelle also was a key member on two relays, including a season best contribution on the 400 Free Relay. Michelle is in her first year as a member of the ATWB squad and has shown a great work ethic, positive attitude, and a willingness to push herself in and out of the pool. Congratulations Michelle and keep up the good work!!!
Natalie Obrzut was awarded the Golden Goggles for her fantastic meet Tuesday against York and Riverside Brookfield. As a freshman swimming on the varsity level, Natalie contributed crucial points in the medley relay, and backstroke, and 400 Free relay. Natalie has shown a dedicated work ethic (as the above picture from after a drylands demonstrates) and has done a fantastic job of working with her teammates to continue improving. Great job Natalie and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the season holds.
