Congratulations to Milton High School swimmer Katie Grover from Milton, GA – GTM Sportswear’s Athlete of the Month for January 2013.
Each month, six finalists are selected by the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) and GTM Sportswear for strong athletic and academic performance. The finalists are presented via ballot to a group of high school sports writers, high school coaches, NHSCA staff and GTM Sportswear representatives to choose a winner.
“Winning a national award is a great honor for me,” said Grover. “Being recognized for my achievements in the pool by people outside of Georgia only makes it more meaningful.”
Grover ranked fourth nationally in the 100-meter butterfly, sixth nationally in the 100-meter backstroke and took first in the 100-meter freestyle in the state of Georgia for 2012. She maintains a 3.9 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and plans to swim in college.
“If it is possible for me, I would like to continue [swimming] after college as a professional,” said Grover. “I can’t picture my life without swimming”
