Some of the South Lakes swimmers have qualified to compete in the regional tournament. One of the notable names is senior Anna Redican, a swimmer in the 100-yard backstroke, 200-yard medley relay, and the 400-yard freestyle relay.She has been selected as  All-American for the past three years, and this year she is an All-American consideration for her time in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 55.75. Another standout swimmer is senior Sophia Landeryou. She swam a 53.41 in the girl’s 100-yard freestyle and is also swimming as a part of the girls 200-yard medley relay, and the 200 and 400-yard girls freestyle relays. These girls have been on the South Lakes swim team through all 4 years of high school, and they have shown great leadership in the process.

For the boys, sophomore Jeffrey George has qualified for regionals in a few races: the boys 200 and 400-yard medley relays, and the boys 200 and 500-yard freestyles. Jeffery shows a lot of potential as a young swimmer and could be a future All-American within the next few years. Junior Kyle Diederich has also qualified for some of the regional races. He’ll be competing in the boys 200 and 400-yard medley relays, the 50-yard freestyle, and the boys 100-yard backstroke. These boys, even though they may be younger than some other swimmers, show what it means to be a leader in their respective races.

Overall, the swimmers competing for boys are: Nick Bordovsky, Kyle Diederich, Hunter Ellis, Jeffrey Geroge. The swimmers competing for girls are: Hailey Brown, Sophia Landeryou, Hannah Lane, Anna Redican. Good luck to these swimmers in the tournament and for the rest of their swimming careers here at South Lakes!
