Junior Andrea Taylor is making a splash this swim season. Taylor recently qualified for the States in the 100 yard backstroke. Not to mention that she has qualified in the 50, 100, 200, and 500 yard freestyle for Western Mass and of course the 100 yard backstroke.

“This is definitely my best season yet,” said Taylor, “Overall the team is doing well. I really think that we can win league championships this year.

Taylor’s next goal is to break the school’s 100 yard backstroke record; she is 40 milliseconds away.

While swimming may be more of an individual sport Taylor is a great team player.

“She is always cheering during every race,” said sophomore Zoe Hill, “She is very encouraging and gives great advice.” Andrea Taylor is the definition of a true athlete.
