Each year I continue to swim, I gain stronger relationships and continue to grow in physical and mental strength.
I have been a Y member since I was 5 years old and started swimming when I was 6. I have now been a part of the YMCA's Sharks Swim Team for 9 years. Each year I continue to swim, I gain stronger relationships and continue to grow in physical and mental strength. My increase in ability is due to my coaches over the years who have all had a positive impact on my life. When I joined the team as a six year old, I had no self confidence and was even afraid of going to practice. Now I look forward to pushing myself in practice because I know it leads to improvement. I am excited to continue to grow with the encouragement from my teammates and coaches.
Brenna just finished her sophomore year on Warsaw's high school swim team. She placed 17th in the state in the 100 freestyle and 12th in the 50 freestyle. She also broke the school record in both races. She plans to swim for the YMCA's team this summer and represent the Y at Senior State in July!
