Elizabeth is a fourth-year Creek swimmer who has been a dedicated swimmer for over half of her life, and she is eager to share her passion for the sport. Elizabeth has been a leader in the pool throughout her high school career, making the Creek Regional Team all three years. In addition to spending many hours in the pool, Elizabeth works as a Volusia County beach lifeguard and loves to surf and exercise on the beach.
One of Elizabeth’s goals as captain is to make her teammates excited about being part of the Creek team. With her long swimming career, she has experienced both the “thrill of victory and the agony of defeat,” which will enable her to use that experience to help teammates with their struggles and triumphs. Elizabeth will pair up 3rd and 4th-year swimmers with new team members and set up cheering assignments so that each Creek swimmer always has a mentor and other swimmers cheering for them at meets. She also plans to encourage fellow swimmers to set goals and celebrate achieving them.
Elizabeth’s favorite subjects are environmental science and history. She is interested in colleges all over the country. Wherever she ends up and whatever the future holds for her, Elizabeth’s love for meeting new people and her top-notch work ethic will carry her far.
