Blue Rays Duo Earn Medals in Swim Festival

The_Hees

Andrew and Jada Hee, both members of our Blue Rays Swim Team, brought home medals in competitive swimming and diving this month in county swim and diving festivals. The two joined the Blue Rays just last year. Although mastering the four strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle) commonly used in competition took many hours of dedication and hard work at the Club, it paid off for both Andrew and Jada. The solid foundation they gained in our Aquatics program and subsequent success they enjoyed in our own Club meets spurred them to continue improving their skills over the summer, including learning diving, and the two went on to participate in both the  East Los Angeles County Swim and Diving Regionals and the LA84 Swim and Dive Festivals. Andrew earned third place in the East Los Angeles County Diving Regionals, while Jada took first place in the 9-10 age group in both the regionals and the LA84 Dive Festival. Congratulations Andrew and Jada!
