Toby Gjevre

Minneapolis, Minn. / Wayzata

Josh Montgomery

Yakima, Wash. / Davis

Coach Myhre: "A red racing suit during the 100-freestyle brings a smile to Josh's face! He has never broken a bone in his body and has no plans to do so.  In 20 years, you will find Josh in LA!"

Torrance, Calif. / Palos Verdes Peninsula

Coach Myhre: "Brennan's event of choice is the 100-backstroke, and when racing he might be wearing a green speed suit. His mom has been his swim coach for the past four years. Twenty years from now Brennan will be living in LA!"

Jack Renschler

Snohomish, Wash. / Glacier Peak

Coach Myhre: "Jack enjoys swimming the 100-freestyle and might be seen rockin' a red speed suit. A fun fact is that he enjoys playing water polo, and in 20 years he will live somewhere in Seattle."

WOMEN

Maiya Arias

Hilo, Hawaii / Hilo

Coach Myhre: "Maiya enjoys racing the 500-freestyle, but it has to be in a pink suit! If she laughs a little too hard she gets the hiccups. In 20 years, Maiya will be travelling the world helping those who are sick or injured."

Catherine Frisiras

Portland, Ore. / Tigard 

Coach Myhre: "You can find Catherine gleefully swimming the 1,000-freestyle in a pink hued racing suit. Watching scary movies is what she likes most, and living in the PNW is where she'll be in 20 years!"

 

***

 

Kyra Hartley

Walla Walla, Wash. / Walla Walla

Coach Myhre: "Kyra loves the 100-backstroke in any suit, but a blue one makes her go fastest. She loves water polo and may still be playing in 20 years on a lake, somewhere in the PNW!"

Poulsbo, Wash. / North Kitsap

Moira Lee

Bethel, Conn. / Miss Porter's School

Coach Myhre: "Moira is a 100-butterflyer that embraces the color pine green. Doors, sandals, and the zoo are on Moira's list of least favorite things or places due to a childhood incident.  In 20 years, do not look for her to be in America!"

 

***

 

Hannah Lillard

Lone Tree, Colo. / Rock Canyon

Grace Moussa

Petaluma, Calif. / Analy

Coach Myhre: "Grace swims the backstroke with the most joy, also in a blue racing suit. She is passionate about painting murals and may very well still be doing that in 20 years, somewhere in California!"

Mae Niebuhr

Minneapolis, Minn. / Southwest

Coach Myhre: "Mae is a 500-freestyler, and She prefers the color light blue. She wore an eyepatch as a child for a medical reason. In 20 years she may be back in Minneapolis, but wherever she is, she will be happy!"
