What is your most memorable swimming/diving moment? Why?
My most memorable swimming moment was my junior year when I found out I had made state for the first time. I was in target with my high school relay team and we uploaded the state call-up list on one of our phones. When we saw my name we all started screaming and jumping up and down! I love my teammates so much.
