Michaela Loomis, Kimball High Class of 2013, was presented with her varsity letter for swimming at the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., on March 14.

Loomis, a first-year cadet at West Point, swims the breaststroke for the Army Black Knights women’s team, which went 6-6 in the NCAA Patriot League during the 2013-14 season.

Her best times, set Dec. 12 in the Army’s meet against the U.S. Naval Academy, include a mark of 1 minute, 5.60 seconds in the 100 breaststroke. That is the second-best time in the event on the women’s team this year and ties Loomis for fifth place on the Army’s all-time top-10 list.

Her best time in the 200 breaststroke (2:23.98), also set at the Navy meet, is the third-best time for the Army women’s team this year and is eighth on the Army’s top-10 list for the event.

In addition to swimming, Loomis is taking a class load of 22 credits in her first year at West Point.

She swam for Ellis Aquatics. Just think of how many more great swimmers we could send off to colleges on swimming scholarships if we could get our acts together and build a competition aquatics center. Scholarships saves parents a car load of money.
