Salina Area Girls Swimmers to Watch 

Karik Elliott – Smoky Valley 

Karik is an excellent example of a great all-around student athlete. She excels in the classroom and in the pool. She has such a kind heart and a great attitude at all of our practices and meets and the other girls really look up to her. She sets high goals for herself and works hard to reach them. We are truly lucky to have Karik on the team!

Marissa Pearcy – McPherson 

Marissa is an excellent example of a leader both in and out of the pool. She is extremely talented in the sport of swimming as well as a great role model for our younger swimmers. She comes to practices and meets with a positive attitude every single day and never once complains about anything. She is her teammates’ #1 fan and is always encouraging them at meets and in practices. Marissa is such a hard worker and a kind and caring person. We are truly lucky to have her on the team.
