Swimming: West Mifflin sophomore a real closer

Written by Brad Everett on .

Brad Everett, on the West Mifflin Swim team:

"Just call West Mifflin sophomore Brad Kolesar "the comeback kid."

His coach, Steve Larkin, refers to him as a "back-half" swimmer. Kolesar routinely trails his competition at the faster meets only to rally in the final 25 yards and usually win.

So when Kolesar was in fourth place 50 yards into the 100-yard butterfly event at the WPIAL championships two weeks ago, he had his competition right where he wanted them, right?"
