With swim season almost here, FCHS may have an upcoming star athlete in the mix. Sophomore Abby Fuller won all her events and set three new meet records at the Jefferson Swim League Championships this past July.

Fuller broke the 50-meter breaststroke record with a time of 30.33 seconds, set a new record in the 50-yard butterfly with a time of 25.82 seconds, and left her mark on the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 24.01 seconds. While she enjoys all three events, she says the 50-meter freestyle is her specialty.

Swimming involves many different muscle groups depending on the technique, and can be very taxing on the body. So although you might expect her to be jumping for joy at breaking so many records, she said she was mostly just tired from competing at the event.

“The free[style] is just an all-out sprint, using all your major muscles. The breaststroke is a slower pace, and in the butterfly, you’re trying to bring the whole top half of your body out of the water,” she explained.

Fuller began her swimming career when her parents signed her up for swim classes at the age of three. She currently trains in the fall and spring at ACAC and swims for the Elks Lodge in the summer. She said she would like to continue her swimming career in college, possibly at the University of Virginia. However, “nothing is definite yet,” she added.
