December 15, 2014, I achieved my goal of making the varsity swim team at the local high school. I’m grateful that the local high school allows homeschoolers to participate in sports even on the varsity level. I made the varsity team in my second swim season for swimming the 100 yard breaststroke in 1:27:75 making league.
Homeschooling allowed me to put extra time into training. As a second year swimmer it helped me catch up to the other girls and move up lanes.
My sister Marisa who is in public school also made varsity for being the team manager.
