BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Winners in the swimming pool have patient discipline. Even swimmers on a team spend a lot of time with themselves in their head and in the water. Audrey Willoughby on the Liberty High swim team has the discipline it takes to be a winner.
"You just have to love it," Willoughby said at practice on Wednesday, "you have to go out every practice and give 110% because that is what's going to make you a better swimmer in competition."
But it wasn't always like that.
Audrey's hard work was on display last week - she put in for first place finishes for Liberty, they defeated Centennial and remain unbeaten in league.
While Audrey plans on winning league and eventually valley as a senior, she has plans beyond that. The valley prospect has just committed to swim collegiately in division one at Cal State Bakesfield.
"As a team we can now go root her on," Marc said of his star-swimmer's college proximity, "I am proud of her, no matter where she goes she is a benefit to that team."
