Swimmer Profile! Sarah Reingold '10

As many of you know, Sarah is taking advantage of our semester abroad program. The program is one of the best in the country, and Bates' students rarely miss out on a chance to take advantage of such a great experience! Even better though is that Sarah had a breakout sophomore year in the pool, and even though she is in Chile this semester, she isn't letting her swimming get away from her. A Bobcat on a mission... I love it! Below is a note from her. Check it out and be sure to drop Sarah a note if you get the chance!
Hey Coach!
Sounds like everything is off to a good start! It’s really hard to describe in an email how amazing Chile is, but I will defiantly send out an email to you and the rest of the team soon. Also, I attached some pictures. The first is the pool in Valparaiso, the site of the "National Meet." As you can see, there is a hugh window with a great view of the beach (we were right next to the ocean). I've been training with a club swim team down here (they are called Universidad Catolica) and they invited me to swim in their national meet. Below is also a picture of the 4x100 medley relay (I swam the backstroke) and we got 3rd! The next picture is me with a famous Chilean soap opera star (thought that was pretty cool). And the last picture is of the Andes (from when I went skiing). I gotta run Coach... Gook luck with everything!
