This week's Athlete of the Week is David Carter '21. David is a member of the Walsingham swim program and he has been a part of the varsity swim team for the last three years.
Last week, David and the rest of the Trojans' swim team had their first meet of the season, competing at Norfolk Academy. David swam on the Walsingham 200-yard medley team with Will Wyles '23, Brendan Bouchard '23, and Jake Falcone '23 that earned 5th-place in the event. Individually, David earned 6th in the 100-yard individual medley, 8th out of 24 swimmers in the 100-yard freestyle, and placed 3rd in the 100-yard backstroke. The meet was not scored for points but David competed admirably against a very tough Norfolk Academy team.
In addition to his great meet on Friday, David's coach says, "He has been a great role model in practice for not only the few boys we have on the team, but the entire team. He embodies the team first mentality an it was exemplified at the meet and in his interpersonal interactions with his teammates."
David and the rest of his teammates will continue their season this Friday when they head down to compete in the Norfolk Collegiate Meet.
Congratulations David, and Go Trojans!!
