This week's athlete of the week is Nick Kearns '20. Nick is a member of the varsity swim team and this is his fourth year swimming for the Trojans.
Last week, Nick and his teammates participated in two meets. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, the Trojans competed in the meet hosted by Catholic High School in Virginia Beach. Nick swam in two individual events and finished first overall in the 100 freestyle and second overall in the 50 freestyle. On Saturday, Feb. 8, the Trojans competed in the TCIS Championship Meet in Newport News. Nick again swam in both the 50 and 100 freestyle, this time earning a seventh overall finish in both events.
With his impressive showings throughout the year, Nick will be headed off to Christiansburg this weekend to compete in the VISAA State Championship Meet. Nick is the lone Trojans' male swimmer to participate in the state meet this year, but he will also be joined by female teammates Olivia Clark, Emma Lobash, Maddie Nassabi, Summerlin O'Hallarn, Olivia Robinson, and Caitlyn Rogerson.
Congratulations Nick, and go Trojans!!
