Name: Monica Sowinski
High School: Latrobe
Background: Monica Sowinski reached the championship finals in both of her relays and both of her individual events last year at the PIAA Class AAA championships. Now in her final state meet, Sowinski hopes for similar results. Sowinski won bronze at WPIALs in the 200 freestyle but her seed time of 1:50.74 places her as the fifth seed in the state in the event, a testament to how fast the event at WPIALs was. She is seeded less than one second off the top seed time owned by North Allegheny sophomore Lauren McGrath. Sowinski won bronze at WPIALs in the 100 freestyle. At states she will be seeded fourth in the event with a time of 50.99.
