Swimmer of the Month: Danielle Albert

Danielle started swimming with the Middle Tyger group over a year ago. She fell into the fray and has given %110 percent since then. She comes nearly every day, whether we were swimming in Greenville or Spartanburg, and she comes with the mindset that she wants to get better. The MTY team has really stepped up their game since December, in preparation for the Sarasota meet, and Danielle has been a shining example of dedication. She not only makes it to the regular swim workouts, but she religiously comes to the Sunday dry land practices. She has been joining Coach Kris in the gym for lifting and ab workouts. So everyone give Danielle *Pipes* Albert some love next time you see her!
