Dear Editor: June 7, 2012 was a red letter day for the special needs community. As my granddaughter Rachel Kreiger stood in front of the Claremont Police Commission meeting to receive her award, she was able to reach out to the 86-year-old neighbor whose home had burned. They stood arm-in-arm as Rachel accepted a real medal for having the presence of mind to call 911 and then bravely go towards the flames to waken and alert everyone to escape the midnight blaze. The act of heroism on the night of the fire is worthy of praise, but the ability to stand in front of a group of uniformed police officers and community members and openly show her love was, for those of us who knew the years of fear and isolation and rejection Rachel had to overcome, an even greater act of valor. Of course, the Krieger family is proud of Rachel for what she did, but we’re prouder still of who she has become. The Claremont Police Commission provided an opportunity to their own and to the community to see into the true heart of a young lady, despite a history of multiple developmental prob-

lems we now recognize as on the Autism spectrum. Rachel’s previous encounters with police were primarily for negatives like major meltdowns resulting in hospital intervention, as Rachel struggled to deal with her challenges. Because the police and other first responders were there to help her in the past, Rachel began to understand the need to help others. We want to thank the commission, Officer Mike Ciszek, and everyone involved in presenting this award. And gratitude to the Claremont COURIER for their caring concern in interviewing Rachel and the family and friends who attended the ceremony. On behalf of Rachel, we also want to acknowledge the support of Tri City therapy providers, the Pomona Valley/Inland Learning disAbilities Association, NAMI, teachers, neighbors, family and friends and especially her precious Autism service dogs, Tara and Nikki, for helping Rachel navigate the rocky road of growing up “special” and allowing her to become the proud recipient of a Police Excellence Award. With deep appreciation,

Acts of heroism celebrated by Police Commission
laremont police gathered at City Hall late last week for the annual police awards ceremony, honoring the accomplishments of the department’s personnel and volunteers. One of the department’s most distinguished awards was given to a woman without a badge or uniform.
In addition to recognizing those among its own ranks, Claremont police bestowed an honorary distinction, The Police Medal of Excellence, to a citizen of Claremont. The department gives this award to a resident who has shown exemplary service to both the Claremont PD and the community. The honor, though, had an exceptional significance to award recipient Rachel Krieger. When receiving the award, Ms. Krieger, 32, stood arm-in-arm with neighbor Anna Petrovich, who Ms. Krieger helped save when a fire broke out at Ms. Petrovich’s south Claremont home last April. Family members say the distinction has brought about a new level of self-confidence for the usually shy Ms. Krieger, who is diagnosed with autism. None of that social anxiety was present as Ms. Krieger beamed in front of the crowds. “Characteristically, it was something that no one had ever thought to expect of her. She has just turned out to be the most socially appropriate and caring person,” said Ms. Krieger’s grandmother, Arline Krieger. “The recognition by the community has built her selfconfidence. Now she is much more social.” Instead of panicking in an emergency situation, Ms. Krieger calmly called police the night she discovered her neighbor’s home had re-ignited into flames less than 24 hours after an initial blaze. “Typically, people with autism will run and hide in the face of adversity. However, Rachel rose above this challenge and handled the situation bravely, with regard for the safety of her neighbors,” said Claremont Captain Jon Traber before bequeathing Ms. Krieger with her medal. “Rachel’s quick thinking and appropriate response in the face of danger helped save lives that night.” Ms. Krieger exuded a sense of confidence standing in front of the packed council chamber Thursday night, any social anxiety was seemingly absent. “I am excited because I get to show people,” Ms. Krieger explained of her shiny new medallion. While she was honored for her outstanding bravery, for Ms. Krieger it was about looking after a maternal figure in her life.
Officers recognized by the Police Commission include from left: Captain Jon Traber who presented the awards; Officer Jacob Tillman, who received the Lifesaving award; Officer Matt Hamill, who received a MADD DUI arrest award; Don Gray, recognized for 20 years of volunteer service on community patrol; Corporal Hector Tamayo, who also received a MADD DUI arrest award; and Chief Paul Cooper who assisted in presenting the recognitions.

“My neighbor needed help,” said Ms. Krieger, who admitted she was scared, but knew what she had to do. Ms. Krieger grew up in her grandmother’s Kirkwood Avenue home, where “she had a history of watching out for Ann’s house,” her grandmother noted. She always had a special bond with Ms. Petrovich, who lived right across the street. “Ann is like a grandma to her and I’m more like a full-time caretaker,” Arline Krieger explained of her realtionship with her grandaughter. “Ann would always tell her ‘You come watch my house for me.’ She felt a sense of responsibility.” When Ms. Petrovich’s home went up in flames Easter Sunday, Ms. Krieger was among the first in line with other neighbors to come to Ms. Petrovich’s aid. Those first acts of kindness were followed by
further actions of bravery, for which both the Claremont police and the Pomona Valley Learning Disabilities Association formally recognized her. During the early morning following the initial fire, Ms. Krieger was putting her dog outside when she noticed Ms. Petrovich’s house had once again gone up in flames. Instead of panicking, she immediately called the police. She then went over to the house where Ms. Petrovich was staying, adjacent to the flames, to alert her and other neighbors about the second blaze. “She had to run right by the house, where the fire was dropping down all around, to get to the door,” Ms. Petrovich explained. Afterwards, Ms. Krieger escorted Ms. Petrovich and the others to her grandmother’s home and provided her with some slippers and tea. “She didn’t even want her slippers back. She has always looked out for me,” Ms. Petrovich said emotionally, admitting that Ms. Krieger is like one of her own. “She always comes in [the house] with cookies or biscuits or hot tea or cider. She just loves to surprise me and bring me food. She is terrific.” Receiving the award has provided a wonderful learning opportunity not only for Ms. Krieger, but also for others in the special needs community, according to grandmother Arline. Several of Ms. Krieger’s friends from a young adult social group, part of the Pomona Valley Learning Disabilities Association, were present at the meeting to support their friend and attend a celebratory pizza party afterward. “It has brought her into a place of honor among her friends, and the kind of self-confidence that comes with that is something to really be sought after for any kid with any kind of challenge,” Arline said. “To know they have made a difference...that is probably the biggest gift that they, or any of us, can ever get.”

Former CHS football star facing second set of charges for sexual assault
former Claremont High School football star convicted of statutory rape is heading back to court next week after allegations of further rape offenses have surfaced in Claremont within the past year.
The Claremont Police Department arrested Tyler Singleton in late April 2012 on 2 new suspected counts of unlawful sex, this time including rape by use of intoxicants. He is currently about one year into a 5-year probation for a previous statutory rape offense that had him sentenced to 180 days in jail in 2010. Mr. Singleton had pleaded no contest to the 2010 charges. Mr. Singleton, a Pomona resident, first made news in Claremont as the former starting running back for the CHS football team. Transferring to CHS midway through his freshman year, Mr. Singleton became the leading rusher in the Baseline League during the 2008-09 season and was twice named to the All-Baseline League. However, he was barred from CHS in April 2010 as a result of his plea bar-
gain. After investigation by the Claremont Police Department, the District Attorney's Office of Los Angeles County filed 2 criminal counts of unlawful sex against Mr. Singleton in March 2010. Two fellow CHS students brought the charges forward, claiming rape and unlawful sex with a minor. A 14-yearold female initially came forward, accusing Mr. Singleton of raping her in a bathroom at Cahuilla Park, located just north of the high school. According to the victim’s statement, she had agreed to enter the bathroom where they began kissing. She said she resisted further advances, but Mr. Singleton forced himself upon her. A 15-year-old female student came forward later that day also claiming an inappropriate sexual encounter with Mr. Singleton. He initially denied both allegations, claiming sexual activity was “consensual”, according to Claremont Police Sergeant Robert Rauchfuss in a COURIER article published in February 2010. During the sentencing hearing, Mr. Singleton’s mother Rita Singleton addressed the court, saying her son “leads a positive and productive life.” He has volunteered at nursing homes and has done other community service and is
active in his church, she said. “This incident has caused him and the family much pain and suffering, and the punishment you are seeking for him is not commensurate with the overall circumstances,” Ms. Singleton said. Mr. Singleton declined to give a statement during the hearing, but the 14-year-old victim’s mother claimed there were more victims out there. “I don’t think justice was served today,” she said after the June 2010 hearing. Mr. Singleton was not required to register as a sex offender. “He should have been charged with forcible rape.” Still on probation for those charges, Mr. Singleton has once again found himself in difficult circumstances. On September 11, 2011, an 18-year-old female resident of Claremont reported a sexual assault to the Claremont Police Department. The victim claimed Mr. Singleton was the perpetrator of the assault, which allegedly involved intoxicants. Police declined to state what intoxicant was used in this case. Claremont police conducted a preliminary investigation, which included gathering evidentiary items, a medical examination and a sexual assault kit. “During that exam, DNA was recov-
ered and forwarded to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Crime Lab,” said Claremont Police Detective James Hughes. Claremont police were notified of the lab results at the end of March. The findings positively matched the DNA to that of Mr. Singleton, who was located at his residence in Pomona and called in to the Claremont Police Department for questioning. He denied the sexual assault charges. “He acknowledged knowing the victim, but denied the sexual assault or any kind of sexual experience with her,” Det. Hughes said. After being told of the DNA evidence, Mr. Singleton continued to deny any involvement, according to Det. Hughes. As a result of the evidence coupled with his denial, Mr. Singleton was arrested for rape on April 26. The counts were filed through the Los Angeles County District Attorney. Mr. Singleton is currently being held at the Los Angeles County jail as he awaits court proceedings. An arraignment for Mr. Singleton is set for 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 20 at Pomona Superior Court, Department F.

Claremont High School valedictorian Serena Liu will be attending UC Berkeley to study electrical engineering and computer science. She has been very active while at CHS, playing tennis, participating in the Art Club and belonging to the Future Business Leaders of America.
CHS says goodbye to seniors, honors top students
ore than 500 students will grab a piece of the future in the form of a high school diploma during the Claremont High School graduation, set for Thursday, June 14 at 5 p.m.
It’s not easy to make a splash in the Class of 2012. Many grads have been involved in honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes, which add extra weight to a student’s grades. GPAs of 4.0 and beyond are relatively commonplace. Despite the fierce but friendly competition, 2 girls— Serena Liu and Josephine Chen—have risen to the top of their class, taking the honors of valedictorian and CHS salutatorian Josephine Chen will be staying salutatorian, respectively. With a GPA of 4.54, Serena will head to UC Berkeley in town to attend college at Harvey Mudd, where this coming fall. Josephine, 4.52, has been accepted to she plans to study computational biology. in the room where the Wolfcast news program is filmed, Harvey Mudd College. CHS Assistant Principal June Hilton marveled at is based on commonality. Both teens have a penchant for math and science. how many of the newly-minted alums are moving on to impressive post-secondary plans after high school Serena plans to study electrical engineering and comcareers marked by stellar academics and healthy ex- puter science at Berkeley. Josephine will pursue comtracurricular participation. In fact, Josephine’s twin putational biology at Harvey Mudd. “I like the quirkiness of all the students there,” sister, Annie, has earned a spot at Carnegie Mellon Josephine shared.

Josephine and Serena have participated in some Though she wishes the school could honor more than the top 2 students, Ms. Hilton said Serena and quirky activities themselves, including the annual ClareJosephine deserve starring roles in the graduation cer- mont Robotics Competition held at the Claremont Graduate University. The annual contest, which involves emony. “I’m very proud of them because I think they truly fifth through twelfth grade students from throughout represent the type of student we have at CHS,” Ms. the district, requires participants to construct and program tiny robots that are then tested on a course for Hilton said. Serena and Josephine have spent the last 4 years speed and agility. With a slew of AP classes between them, the girls with nearly neck-and-neck grades and the common goal of conquering a seemingly endless array of AP also share the common experience of having life feel tests. It would be easy to imagine the teens as keen ri- like one big cram session. Since her sophomore year, Josephine, for example, vals. In fact, they’re friends. The bond between the girls, who spent their final has taken AP tests in the following subjects: world hisdays at the high school painting a mural of the campus tory, chemistry, calculus, statistics, psychology, com-
position, US history, literature, physics and Spanish. AP classes are intended to have the structure and rigor of a college-level course. At most colleges, students who pass an AP test can bypass a course in the same subject. While Josephine’s advanced curriculum may have helped to catch Harvey Mudd’s attention, she notes that HMC does not accept AP credits. Berkeley may accept some of Serena’s AP credits but, given the high-tech nature of her field of study, most of her curriculum will be far beyond these core subjects. Academics have kept these students busy, but they have managed to enjoy out-of-the-classroom pursuits. Serena loves playing tennis and the piano; she loves Chopin and also likes to improvise her own chords. Josephine, who has studied martial arts, is a bit of an adventurer. She will be heading to rural Taiwan this summer to teach English to children. With their sound education and a passionate interest in many things, Serena and Josephine will undoubtedly find great successes after graduation. They will leave behind an impact on the school and on instructors like English teacher Kevin Glavin, who said that the outgoing seniors have been “incredibly hard workers” and a joy to have in class. “So much in AP literature depends on participation from students,” Mr. Glavin said. “You really need to have a discussion. They’ve always added to the discussion with some very insightful comments, whether about the Canturbury Tales, The Scarlet Letter...” Serena and Josephine have some insights to share with young students hoping to achieve a similar level of academic achievement. “Do take the hard classes, work hard, study hard,” Serena said. “But also have fun and enjoy the time you have here with your friends.” Josephine agreed, adding, “It’ll be easier if you don’t procrastinate.” —Sarah Torribio

A scary tome: The yearbook
by Debbie Carini
he other day, my son brought home his yearbook. He was excited to show me the different pages where he appeared—his action shot on the soccer team page, his Glee-like crooner on the choir page. His actual senior photograph is difficult to distinguish though, because the school requires that all male students pose in a black tuxedo with a bow tie and that all girls wear a black stole.
I wondered how he would ever take pleasure in the wonderful visuals that I have enjoyed with my own yearbook (1977). Many pages of girls with the Farrah Fawcett flip, boys in leisure suits, incredibly large collars, wide lapels, alarming amounts of polyester— I can actually see the glow of Qiana (knit polyester) as I thumb through the pages. People say that the 1960s were psychedelic, but truly, has anyone ever studied the yearbooks of the early to mid-1970s? There are the popular girls dressed in shiny blouses, their faces gleaming with disturbingly dark tans (we didn’t have all those letters
and numbers UVA/UVB SPF5, 15, 50 back then), and the cool guys—also tan—dressed in multishaded plaid jackets and oddly, also sporting the Farrah flip. And then there is me, on page 20. I am easy to spot—Casper-like in my paleness with bright red hair. The original senior photo that I sat for was somehow ruined at the photographer’s studio (you can only imagine the abuse I endured, mostly thanks to my younger, tanner, flip-haired sister who chortled, “You broke the camera!”), so I had to have my picture retaken, and not conveniently at school, but at the photographer’s studio which was a few towns away, plus I needed to bring a parent, so my dad drove me. That morning, I struggled with my wavy, thick red hair as I did everyday during the 1970s when long, straight blonde locks were de rigueur (thank you Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Ladd). My blonde eyelashes and eyebrows did little to help my Morticia-
like pallor. We set off for the photographer’s studio and when we were just far enough from home that turning back would have been impossible, my dad looked over at me in my grey-striped cowl-neck and said, “Your head kind of looks like it’s sitting in a bowl.” I know my dad loves me. He always told me I was pretty, and kissed my face nearly every day of my years growing up. But my head did look like it was sitting in a bowl, and it does on page 20 of the 1977 Upland High School Hielan yearbook. Amongst the signatures and well-wishes throughout the pages, one fellow student even commented (exactly in these words) on my “distinctive (to say the least) hairstyle!” And another wrote, “Usually I make it a habbit (sic) never to associate with red-haired people.” I am not fabricating these quotes. Thank goodness that today there is an instructional page on www.wikihow.com: How to Sign a Yearbook in 9 Steps! My son looks out from his senior picture, a bright, confident young man with clear blue eyes, a winning smile and tightly-coiffed strawberry blonde hair—he looks exactly as he should: ready and happy to greet the next exciting stage of his life. Congratulations to the class of 2012!
Looks like they are a loving couple. Here comes their dream house.

When the store sold on October 31 of the same year, a new chapter in his life began, the pages of which are bringing him great satisfaction. “I’m very lucky. I’m blessed. I enjoy what I do,” Mr. Goldsmid told the COURIER on June 5, 2012, his 71st birthday. Though he misses the store, especially the patrons, many of which became his very close friends during the store’s 24-year operation, there’s not as much love lost in terms of running it, which was a demanding job. Without the constraints of the store’s opera-
tional hours and the endless tasks associated with keeping it going, his time is much more his own, although he’s doing a damn fine job at filling it. “I’m busier than ever,” he said. While no longer a bookstore owner, books still dominate Mr. Goldsmid’s time. He continues to use his expertise to buy and sell for collectors and libraries, but his primary activity these days is book appraising. Determining a book or book collection’s value is a talent he’s honed since 1984, an endeavor that is always fresh with discovery and one he considers a “great gift” in terms of the unique experiGOLDEN YEARS continues on the next page

ences it brings. Consider his appraisal of the book Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium (The Metamorphic Insects of Suriname). The beautiful, dual-language book (containing text in both Latin and Dutch) was written and illustrated in 1705 by Maria Sibylla Merian, who shunned the period’s societal gender norms. The book’s scientific importance, stunning illustrations, “highly desirable” type of engraving and rarity made it “a treat to appraise,” said Mr. Goldsmid. The prized book’s determined worth? “A small house,” said Mr. Goldsmid. (“A house in Claremont?” he was further queried, to which he responded, “With the recession, yes.”) Mr. Goldsmid explained the sizable value in a culminating report that spanned 35 pages. Far beyond merely a statement of value, an appraisal report must describe the book(s) in great detail and provide information that supports the estimate. “You have to explain the process, your sources, the logic of what you do and
how you arrived at the valuation,” Mr. Goldsmid said. Appraisers must be willing and able to stand behind their appraisals in a legal sense, as it’s conceivable that they may be called in to testify about and defend a given valuation. “Let’s say someone is donating a quarter-of-a-million-dollar book. The IRS will look at that. I have to put myself in that setting. If I were called in on a review, it’s the report they focus on,” he explained. In addition to individual books, Mr. Goldsmid appraises book collections, with a huge number ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 in value (individual books are frequently valued at this level as well), but with others going well into 7 figures. His client pool is diverse and includes individual collectors, universities, academic libraries, museums, estates and insurance companies as well as their customers wanting to insure their book collections and needing an official appraisal to do so. With no dearth of appraisal work to be done, he is pleased that he can work as much as he wishes. Adding to his prowess as an appraiser,
since retiring from Claremont Books & Prints, Mr. Goldsmid earned certification as an accredited senior appraiser in the field of books and manuscripts through 6 rigorous 3-day courses—complete with homework, tests and grades— through the American Society of Appraisers in conjunction with the University of California, Irvine. Becoming credentialed in this manner gave him 3 valuable benefits: more knowledge, increased credibility and new contacts in the appraisal field. ut life post-Claremont Books & Prints isn’t all about books. Spending quality time with close friends is an important part of Mr. Goldsmid’s days and weeks, and he treasures his regular Wednesday lunch outings with local lauded poet Pete (formerly a.k.a. B.H.) Fairchild and Scripps College English Professor John Peavoy. Leisurely mornings filled with great conversation at 42nd Street Bagel Café also bring him joy. Feeling fortunate that his body is cooperating with his interest in physical activity, Mr. Goldsmid delights in going to the gym and scrambling around the racquetball court 3 days a week. Though in good shape at 71, Mr. Goldsmid nonetheless admits, “I’m no friend of mortality.” Happy, healthy, fully engaged in pursuits he’s passionate about and still in love and having fun with his wife of 45 years, when asked what he’ll be doing after the next 5 years go by, his cheery countenance darkened just slightly: “I’m scared.”
For now, he’ll cherish each moment and look forward with giddy anticipation to the surprises he knows will come along the way—such as the next birthday adventure planned by his wife, Paula Goldsmid. Often, Ms. Goldsmid will insist he make no plans for a particular weekend, and then it’s “pack your bag and let’s go.” “I get in the car and don’t know where the hell I’m going,” said Mr. Goldsmid, clearly tickled by these mystery outings. For this birthday, however, his wife gave him a hint about the undisclosed outing by asking a simple question: “If you could feed an animal, which would it be—a seal, a penguin or an otter?” “I told Paula penguins or otters over seals (no offense intended to seals!), but she is leaving which as a surprise,” he said of the impending adventure. Leaving Walter’s Restaurant after the wonderful “What are you doing now?” conversation, a passerby said to the highly-recognizable Mr. Goldsmid, as if it were a planned encounter, “You’ve gotta reopen that bookstore. I miss it!” Though comments like this may stir up a nostalgic longing for days gone by, for the time when he climbed the 21 steps of Claremont Books & Prints over and over again, Mr. Goldsmid is right where he wants to be, doing what he loves, with no regrets. “None. The time had come. I was 66; I wanted to try different things. I never had the feeling of ‘good riddance.’ Ever.”

Going for the gold: The Club sends 3 swimmers to Olympic trials
f Wheaties is the breakfast of champions, then Claremont is the town where they reside.
Three young swimmers from The Claremont Club (TCC) swim team are heading for the US Olympic Team Trials, which will be held June 25 through July 2 in Omaha, Nebraska. To make the cut for the US Olympic swim team, local swimmers
Sonia Wang, 15, Michael Haney, 17, and Noelle Tarazona, 19, will have to qualify as one of the top 2 athletes in the country in at least one event. Like all who hope to win the gold, there is no doubt the teens have taken a moment to imagine themselves competing in the Olympic games to be held later this summer in London. Just getting where they are, though, is a remarkable achievement. In order to qualify for Olympic trials, a swim-
mer must reach a qualifying speed in their chosen event or events. Head TCC swim coach John Ries notes that only one half of one percent of swimmers reach this milestone. Sonia, a freshman at Upland High School, has done so 4 times over, earning a spot in the trials for the 200 and 400 individual medleys and in the 100 and 200 butterfly races. “I’ve worked hard for it, so I guess hard work pays off,” she said. Michael—who just graduated from Bloomington High School with a scholarship that will cover 90 percent of his studies at UC Berkeley—has
qualified for the 200 butterfly and 100 freestyle. He achieved the necessary time for the butterfly just this summer, which he said was a happy surprise. Noelle, who graduated from Claremont High School in 2011, will be participating in the same events as Sonia. This will be her second time at Olympic swim trials; she traveled to Omaha when she was 15, aiming for a slot on the US team that traveled to Beijing. “It’s very exciting,” she said of the

trials. “It’s fun to be at a meet where everyone is so passionate about swimming. It makes for great competition and I really enjoy that.” Coach Ries, who has worked with all 3 of these standout swimmers since they were small, says you have to be “tough as nails” to get to this level. Noelle, whom he says is the hardest-working athlete he’s had the opportunity to mentor since he began coaching in 1961, certainly fits this description. “She’s never missed a workout. To make her miss a workout, you have to tie her up and keep her out of the water,” Coach Ries said. “She doesn’t boast about how good she is. She’s just a good kid.” If you want to make it in swimming, this kind of dedication is key. This summer, Sonia and Michael have been putting in 10 practices a week, each of them 2 hours. Noelle—who received a full-ride scholarship to UCLA in acknowledgement of her swimming skills—has been practicing 8 times a week, in addition to time spent running, weight training and working on abdominal strength. At times, the swimmers’ year-round training has required them to make sacrifices: many slumber parties and all-nighters have been missed by these student athletes in deference to the practice that is inevitably held the next morning. Nonetheless, Sonia says she finds time to hang out with friends when she can. “They understand my schedule. We’ll go to the movies sometimes and hang out and chill.” The athletes have also bonded with their teammates, both at The Claremont Club and at their respective high schools and colleges. Michael, who says he really likes watching movies and playing on the computer when he can squeeze it in, shares that he and his fellow TCC swimmers occasionally get together out of the pool to take in a movie or head for the beach. Such enjoyable moments are crucial, said TCC Coach Tressa Ries (yes, she’s John’s daughter!). At The Claremont Club, they’re well aware that 70 percent of kids quit sports by the time they’re 13.
COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Upland resident Sonia Wang listens to her coach John Ries on Monday during one of the daily workouts for The Claremont Club swim team. Sonia qualified for trip to the Olympic trials later this month.
They hope for a different outcome for their swimmers: long careers spanning through college and beyond. “Our philosophy here is when you’re young, keep it light and fun,” she said, pointing out a group of boys heading to the basketball court before practice. “When you see talent, keep it fun, because you don’t want to lose them to burn out.” Sonia, Michael and Noelle are still fully committed to their sport, and say they’re truly looking forward to this memorable opportunity. “I’m excited about all of my races,” Noelle said. “The one I’m looking forward to most is the 200 fly. I’m ranked highest in that event.”
