Busy Summer for WA Aquatics 

June 2, 2016 Posted in: Athletics Tags: ,

This is a special summer for many of our WA aquatic athletes. Three of our athletes will soon be attempting to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Rising Junior Jessica Nava will swim the 100 Butterfly at the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 26. Fellow rising Junior Johanna Holloway will be competing at the U.S. Diving Olympic Trials in the 10m Synchronized Diving event on June 18 in Indianapolis, Indiana. WA alumnus and current WA club swimmer, AJ Barbar, who is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Lebanon will attempt to qualify for the Lebanese team at an international meet in the Bahamas on June 23. A big congratulations to all three of these athletes and may God bless you at these upcoming meets!

Many of our Lion water polo players also have an exciting summer planned. Adam Warters, Naomi Sanders, Tori Maxson, Joseph Maxson, and David Maxson will all be competing at the Sunshine State Games from June 24-26. This will serve as a qualifying tournament for the Junior Olympic tournament in San Jose, California, where Joseph Maxson and Adam Warters’ teams will very likely qualify and Naomi Sanders and Tori Maxson’s teams have a strong chance as well. Rising Sophomore Adam Warters will also be training in Hungary with his club team in late June and Rising Senior Naomi Sanders will be attending the Harvard University Water Polo Camp. In addition, several of our younger players including Antonio Dominguez and Trent and Blake Shaw will be attending water polo camps throughout the summer.
