Addison Blons (9)

How many years have you been swimming? 

“I’ve been in swimming since third grade.”

Is this your first time going to state?

“Yes.”

How did you do at Region and what did you compete in?

“I did pretty good. I competed in 500 free and I got sixth in that and then I competed in 100 back and I got 9th.”

Can you describe your experience at Region?

“So, it was really fun. I was bonding with more people and I talked to people I haven’t as much.”

What were your expectations going in?

“Not high. I didn’t think I would get to be on the State team, so I’m pretty excited about that.” 

What was your initial reaction when you found out you were going to State?

“I was napping and my mom had run upstairs and she was like, ‘you made the team.’ And then I, like, finally realized it. So I was excited. It was very exciting.”

How are you prepping for State?

“I think I’m preparing more mentally than physically.”

What are your expectations for State?

“I’m hoping that our relays can make finals and ribbon because I don’t think we’ll medal, but I’m hoping that our relays do really good.”

So this being your first year, what is going to State mean for you, and how do you think it will be different?

“I would say it means a lot because I’ve had two knee surgeries in the last few years, so I really did not expect to be able to go to State. So it means a lot.”

What is your favorite memory from the season? 

“I don’t know. There’s no specific ones, I really enjoy getting ready with everyone in the mornings after practice.”
