The SwimRVA Hammerhead of the Month is awarded to a member that coaches recognize as having gone above and beyond in trainings, performance, etc. Congratulations for being recognized as this month’s SwimRVA Hammerhead of the Month!
February | Emily Sherald
“Emily has been hard at work, trying to tune up the finer details of her stroke. She is easy to work with and makes great progress every time she is in the water. Always bringing a smile to practice, her lane mates benefit from her positive attitude.” – Coach Dan
“What I also appreciate about her is that she welcomes the non-free parts of the set (even though she is a triathlete). I have seen her doing butterfly repeatedly and never heard one complaint about it. She is very coachable and receptive to any feedback . . . I anticipate that she will see a lot of improvement by the time triathlon season starts as she has certainly put in the work.” – Coach Alice
January | Austin Glass
The SwimRVA Hammerheads January Hammerhead of the Month is Austin Glass!
“Austin has taken on the “Swim 4 It” challenge, and is absolutely killing it in workouts. Not only has he dropped weight, but this morning he threw down :51 100y free from a push twice! He won the 200Fr at the David Gregg Memorial Swim Meet this past weekend at NOVA and continues to raise the bar on his own training while wowing the coaches and his lane mates.”
“His CSS pace has dropped for a 1:02 to :58! The fastest in the Hammerheads program. Despite all of this, Austin remains a humble and welcoming member of the program.” – Coach Jay
