Izzy Schneider – Swimming – Frederick HS

Izzy always has a great attitude at every practice, even during the early mornings. Izzy always give a 110% every time she competes and never gives up. Many of Izzy’s team mates have told her, that she’s their motivation, swim hero and they want to be like her. Izzy has never given up in a challenge, when it comes to swimming. Izzy was constantly swimming the 500 yard free style, which she qualified for state in multiple times.

At every practice Izzy always has a great time, and is a positive influence for her team mates. Izzy is constantly helping others with their techniques and being a bubbly person. Izzy always has a great time at meets, and practices, but when it’s time to get serious, she gets serious.

Payten Irwin – Swimming – Erie HS

Payten is a senior who has competed all four years in high school swimming. As you can see by her list of swimming accomplishments, it is admirable that she is so committed to her high school program. We are competing this weekend in CHSAA 3A State Championship where I am guessing she will earn another state title. Thank you for considering Payten.
