Name: Angela Gyurina
High School: Mt. Lebanon
Background: This time last season Angela Gyurina was a sophomore basketball player at Mt. Lebanon. She was the sixth man on the basketball team, playing for one of the most successful programs in the state under coach Dori Oldaker. Swim coach Tom Donati, running a successful program in his own right, saw another kind of potential in Gyurina.
"I think you can be a Division I swimmer," Donati recalls telling Gyurina. "We got her off the basketball court, it is such a great story. She is a junior who never swam for the high school team. She just bought into it and she is really, really becoming a great swimmer."
