SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Scout Easton

EHS 12th Grade

Number of years on the team: 10ish

Best stroke & best event: 50& 100 Free, 100 & 200 Fly 

How did you get started swimming competitively? I joined the Hiwan Waves when Jeff was the coach there. Then that fall I joined the Hurricanes.  Why I remained....I was oddly in love with the sport.  I had too much fun in Cat1!

Greatest swimming achievement: Coming back after junior year's misadventures and making state in long course in the 50 free.  Best age group memory: Any of the amazing travel trips. If I had to say my favorite, it would be the Florida trip of the summer of 2013. That was the first time I had swam out of state.  What I learned as an age grouper and advice to pass on: With each setback, come back stronger.  You are the only person who can push you hard enough to succeed.  If any one ever tells you to quit, ignore them.  Because if you quit then you have proven to them what they think of you. No one can tell you that you don't belong. YOU DO!           

   

Best part of being a senior swimmer: Witnessing your last year on the team and knowing this is your last chance to achieve your goals before college.  Also, I really have enjoyed hearing from college coaches and seeing different schools.

Best memory being a senior swimmer: I think it would be the time when we were at a meet for high school, actually it was leagues last year. I had only one race, the 50 free, my goal was to make it back for finals.  Sadly, another girl and I tied for 8th place and we had to do a swim off.  Even though I lost, every EHS girl cheered me on

Future goals /seasonal or longer:
Not get hit by a car. But I would like to swim for the NCAA for the next 4 years, as well as go into nursing and get a minor in Art or Art History.
What do you do besides swim? Crochet hats, draw, paint, ski (both water & downhill), lifeguard and read.
PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY!
