Did you know that the 6 foot ninth grader Rowdy Beaman was on Salem Hill’s swim team? Well you do now! He’s been practicing 20 hours a week! Could you do that?
The Lobo Howl got a chance to interview Rowdy and ask him questions about swimming. He started swimming about three years ago, because his dad told him he would be good at it. His dad was correct, because at Rowdy’s first high school meet he broke four records. He broke the 500 free time in 5.31.73 and the 200 free time in 2.06.99. He didn’t know the other times for the other two, but they were the 400 and 200 free relays.
