    Haley upon all of her races wishes other swimmers good luck, and upon the end of races she congratulates every swimmer no matter the outcome. 

    Athlete’s athletic performance during the month of nomination to include but not limited to statistics, key contributions, etc:

    Haley always works her hardest not only in meets but in practice.  She constantly is competing for first place in all of her events and always does her best to better herself and her team.  She had bettered her time in the 50 freestyle to 28.09 and in the 100 breaststroke to 1:13.78. She had qualified for the post season in both events. She also contributes to 2 relays during meets and helped the relay teams to better their times and are near the cusp of qualifying for sectionals in the medley relay.

    Haley is constantly working hard in practice to be the best she can possibly be.  She is always working on techniques to make her stroke more efficient.  She's one of the first to encourage and help others with their techniques and to help then become better swimmers and team mates.  She's an asset to this team and a pleasure to coach.
