Ellie Miller is a freshman on the girls swim team. She decided that she wanted to try swimming competitively for the first time after her friends talked to her about the team. She also wanted to do a sport that kept her in shape for other sports that she does, such as cross country and track.

 

Q: What are your goals for the season?

A: I really want to get better times than I did at the time trial. My ultimate goal, whether it be this year or the coming years, is to be good as Olivia Neunaber.

 

Q: What steps are you going to take to reach your goals?

A: I think that my inner drive for this sport will bring me far in this sport. I learned that effort and determination can get you far in sports, I learned that from my cross country coach.

 

Q: What is your favorite part about the team?

A: My favorite part of the team so far is that you get to talk to people in your lane when you are practicing.

 

Q: What are you looking forward to most this season?

A: I am looking forward to improving more and dropping my times. I am also looking forward to growing closer with my teammates. I like how I have met people I would have never met if I never joined swim.

 

Q: What are some of your struggles that you’ve had to overcome so far?

A: A struggle I have had to overcome so far is learning how to breathe underwater and blowing out through my nose. It is hard to grasp at first because I am not use to it all but I am starting to get the hang of it. Also I have had to learn how to dive into the water because that is how you start the race and it is a key thing when it comes to racing.

 

Q: What are some of your strengths so far?

A: I do the actual swimming strokes pretty well. I definitely need to improve on the diving part of swim but I am glad I have caught onto the strokes pretty well this soon into the season.
