From the Sideline

“Annelise is consistently a hard worker, cheers on her teammates and provides leadership by her work ethic, inclusiveness and positive attitude. She finished in the top six at the North Puget Sound League in two individual events. She also got fifth in the 50 free and 100 breast stroke and was critical in helping our 200 free relay place second.”
