Swimmers of the Year
Rose Pleskow and Alex Stolar earned this
year's Swimmer of the Year distinction.
Chosen for their enthusiastic perseverance to
improving their open water swimming, they
exemplified the true spirit of the open water.
Rose never missed a Thursday swim. The past
year she competed in events, locally and in
Puerto Rico and the Cayman Islands. Alex,
always eager for technique feedback, began
in our winter clinics at the Lab School and
continually stepped up his challenge in each
successive open water competition
throughout the summer.
