Naylor’s first Southwestern Illinois Swim Association championship meet July 17 in the 13-14 girls’ division for Water Works Swim Club was a successful one.
Naylor won three events and earned a first-place High Point award at the conference meet at Summers-Port Pool in Godfrey. She placed first in the 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard intermediate medley and 50-yard butterfly.
The effort earned the 13-year-old Naylor this week’s Edwardsville AdVantage News Athlete of the Week.
She was one of six Water Works swimmers who won three events at the SWISA meet. She earned a High Point award by scoring 48 points in the meet and finishing in a tie for first with Water Works teammate Phoebe Gremaud.
Naylor credits Water Works coach Elizabeth McPherson for her successful outing at the league meet.
“I enjoyed the coaching because with my Edwardsville Breakers season, I swim with her, so we’re like friends and she’s my coach, so it’s really fun,” Naylor said.
Last year, Naylor got a third-place High Point award in the 11-12 girls’ division after placing second in the 100-meter intermediate medley and 50-meter butterfly and third in the 50-meter backstroke at the SWISA championship meet at Paddlers Pool in Granite City.
