State Swim Winner -Jesse Roberts 228.54 KB

Jesse Roberts, the human fish, was awarded as 4A Utah’s Swimmer of the Year. The honor is awarded by a point system. To get high points you have to get low times, making Jesse a shoo-in. He also took 1st place in the individual medley with a time of 1:57.00 and 1st place in breaststroke with a time of 1:00.22. When asked how it felt to hold the trophy and medals in front of all those people, including his opponents, Jesse said, “It was one of the best experiences.” Other members of the swim team are just as thrilled about their fellow swimmer’s success, and say it’s an honor well earned. This is a great way to mark Jesse’s senior year, letting his graduation year become more than just another stepping stone in his life. This year became a year he can never forget. Jesse has shown us all that success consists of hard work, pushing personal limits, and putting your whole heart in the effort.
