Athlete of the Week – Girls Swimming – Sydney Gercak, Sophomore
Sydney is one of the hardest workers one can ever see in this sport. She is the type of athlete every coach hopes to have on their team. Her role is to swim the 200 individual medley which requires her to be the master of all strokes. Sydney has had to train to a very high level of technical expertise due to the challenges inherent in individual medley and has risen to the task at every turn. She is a key component of the winning medley relay team while also dominating the 100 breaststroke and 200 IM.

Robbie also finished the regular season as the 16th ranked wrestler in his weight class.
