Gabe Fabrizio (11)

How long have you been swimming?

“I started in sixth grade and I’ve been swimming since then. Club and High school.”

Is this your first time going to State?

“This is my third time.”

How did you do at Region?

“Not as good as I wanted to do, last year I was faster.”

What did you compete in?

“100 fly and 200 IM and then the 400 free. And the 200 medley relay which was canceled.”

Can you describe your experience at Region?

“It was a good team experience. I think the most exciting thing was the 400 free because we didn’t expect to go so fast. So that was fun. And 200 free also, which is exciting because they got close to the record.”

What were your expectations for Region prelims?

“Day one,  I wasn’t really feeling too good actually. I was feeling slow that day, but I mean I knew I was gonna go to State in the 200 IM.

What were your expectations for Region finals?

“I’d say spirits are definitely higher. Because Region was halfway done. Also we’re up in points I think. It was better than day one.” 

What are your expectations for State?

“State, I’m probably gonna get dead last. But it’ll be fun. The 400 free relay will definitely be fun. Hopefully we can go 48-47 – somewhere in that range.”

What is your favorite memory from this past season?

“Definitely listening to some of coach McLain’s speeches. He’s just brutally honest. But some of the speeches are good. I think they’re very inspiring.”

What has been the hardest part leading up to State?

“The hardest part has probably been staying away from junk food, like ice cream. Really hard for me. I failed like a bunch of times.”
