Five Maggie Walker students competed at the National Club Swimming Association (NCSA) Junior Nationals on March 16-20 in Orlando, Florida. Junior Nationals is the swimming national championship for 18 and under swimmers. Swimmers from Maggie Walker included Hunter Knight (senior), Matt Hesser (senior), Teresa Dula (junior), Meredith Drummond (junior), and Christian Vivadelli (sophomore).
Hunter Knight had an outstanding Junior Nationals meet, and placed in the top 16 in the country for 18 and unders in five events: 3rd in 200 Breast, 6th in 100 Breast, 12th in 50 Breast, 6th in 400 IM, and 16th in 200 IM, as well as strong placements in several relays. Hunter also qualified for Senior Nationals to be held in Irvine, California in August. In addition, Hunter was invited to attend the Irish National Meet in Dublin as a member of the NCSA All Star team. While this was an honor, he will not be able to attend due to other commitments.
Please congratulate these Maggie Walker swimmers on their efforts at Junior Nationals.
