Berkmar Swim and Dive celebrated the season last Friday night with an award banquet and then a fun filled night with a lock-in. Jason Ho, Christopher Carrero, Alex Diaz Hernandez, Victor Nguyen, Alejandro Barron, Ashley Gavarrete-Pena, Madisen Towler, Abagial Towler, Lopez-Zamarripa, and Daniella Barbosa received the top 5 high point awards. Most spirited went to Chrisopher Carrero and Jennifer Espino. 110% went to Abagial Towler and Bryan Nambo-Hernandez. Receiving the most improved award was Donovan Salinas and Abigail Mitchell. Last but not least, the first recipient of the Tim Vander Wood Award (community impact award) Jason Ho. I can't begin to put into words the impact this team has had on myself and each other. I am thankful for the lessons they have taught me and each other. I wish the seniors the best in their future plans and can't wait to see what the future holds. #berkmarfamily
