Congratulations to News-Herald Swimmer of the Year Owen Hanna '19! NH Video.
Swimmer Owen Hanna '19 is the 2019 News-Herald boys Swimmer of the Year. According to The News-Herald: "Hanna could not have capped his career better in his signature event — or overall, really, as the affable University senior earned 2019 News-Herald boys swimmer of the year. The NC State signee was Division II state champion in 100 back, opened US’ winning 200 and 400 freestyle relays and was seventh in 100 butterfly as the Preppers repeated as state team champion. His 48.40 to capture 100 back was a masterpiece, .11 off Matthew Marquardt’s D-II state record and coming off a 21.31 opener to pop 200 free relay. Hanna is one of the premier backstrokers this area has ever produced." 2019 The News-Herald All Stars First Team: Frank Applebaum '20, Ethan Banks '19, Jeffrey Chi '19, Nicolas Tekieli '20, and Will Zhang '19 Second Team: Cal Ritzmann '19 Third Team: Carter Faulkner '20, Prajwal Guruprasad '20, and Caleb Peters '19 Honor Roll: Michael Holtz '20
