Marie Tolmachoff represents the next step in Silverton High School’s swimming program.
The freshman swimmer has been a surprise this season, winning races seemingly at will.
She won the 100 free (1:01.31) and 100 breaststroke (1:14.88) and swam on the winning 200 free relay and 200 medley relay teams in last week’s dual meet against Central.
She was selected as the athlete of the week by a poll of readers.
Tolmachoff and the fast freshman class of Silverton swimmers gives the Foxes a shot at Friday and Saturday’s Mid-Willamette Conference district swimming meet at Corvallis’ Osborn Aquatic Center.
