We sat down with Julia Page at the start of the varsity swim season to discuss her interest in the sport. As a top competitor in the backstroke, Page not only leads the Cards, but has aspirations  to achieve more in the Metro League

Q: When did you start swimming?

A: I joined a swim team in 3rd grade but wasn’t serious about racing until 7th grade.

Q: Why do you love to swim?

A: I love swimming because of all the people you get to surround yourself with during all the practices. The people make the amount of laps you swim back and forth more fun. I also enjoy the feeling after a good race.

Q: What swimmers do you admire?

A: Michael Phelps, Natalie Coughlin, and Rebecca Soni

Q: What is your favorite event to race?

A: My favorite would have to be the 100 backstroke. It’s nice because you get to breathe the entire time, as well as see how close you are to your competitors, plus you get the sight of everyone cheering you on from outside the water.

Q: What is your least favorite event to race?

A: Least favorite would have to be butterfly because it’s the hardest stroke to swim and takes the most energy.

Q: What are your goals for this season?

A: My main goal is to place top 6 in districts for the 100 back. I got 7th last year and want to show improvement throughout the Metro League.
