Quote from Coach Bryce: Isabel might be small, but she is mighty! In the last 6 months I have seen Isabel overcome many of her fears. She battled through the cold of the winter, perfecting her dives, and running a flawless backstroke flip turn in competition, that at first she was hesitant to try. Each and every meet, I can always count on Isabel to put her technique first. This means a great deal to any swim coach! Anyone can go out and scrap themselves to the finish, but it takes true focus and self-discipline to always implement the long-term strategy first. I am extremely proud to have Isabel as part of my team!
What Isabel Likes About Swim Team: I like swim team because I get to see my friends and my wonderful coaches. I also like swim team because I have fun at practice and meets.
