Southwestern Conference standout Sierra Workman, is one of the conference’s best swimmers in the area, but is also someone who people look up to outside of swimming.

Head Coach of the swimming team, Suzanne Gibson said, “Sierra is one of our senior leaders who will be heading into our sectional meet entered and positioned to score in two individual events and in two relays.”

“I am really looking forward to seeing how my team performs at Sectionals. This year, we have had many new talented swimmers, making it very competitive for spots in the sectional. We haven’t been well rested for any of our meets this year, so I’m very excited to see how well we can race when we are fully rested,” said Workman.

Being a part of a team is something Workman values, “My favorite part about swimming is that it is such an individual sport, as well as a team sport. For every race, my whole team is always on the side cheering on their teammates, and that is what motivates me the most.”

The Senior leader competes in the 100 butterfly, 200 individual medley, and 50 and 100 freestyles.
