Toyota High School Athlete of the Week- Ali Testone
When it comes to swimming in Central New York, one athlete stood above the rest at the Section III Tournament.
Ali is a senior at Liverpool and was named the "Swimmer of the Meet" after winning both the 200m Individual Medley and the 100m Breaststroke. Enough to win her that honor and propel Liverpool to a second place overall finish.
Now, it's off to the New York State Tournament. A goal that doesn't just happen overnight.
"Usually every day in the Summer I would get up every day around 6, have practice from 7 until 9 every morning and then we have practice 5-6 days per week so it's a lot of time. But if you put in the work, you'll get the results" Testone says.
Ali will put that hard work on the line at the New York State Tournament in Ithaca, where she hopes to continue to climb the ladder.
For a senior, it's perhaps the perfect sendoff, for Liverpool it's a gift for years to come.
Sure, Testone may graduate in June, but every underclass star that the Warriors have has watched Ali. They have the blueprint for success for years to come.
Congratulations to Ali Testone, our Toyota High School Athlete of the Week.
