Natalie Stuart '22 Named Main Line Girls Athlete of the Week

All-American junior swimmer Natalie Stuart has been named Main Line Girls Athlete of the Week. A school record-holder in the 200 free relay and 400 free relay, Stuart also swims for the Suburban Seahawks, qualifying for the NCSA National Swimming Championships after placing fifth in the 1650 and 12th in the 500 free and 400 IM. Her 400 IM time (4:27.44) and 1650 time (17:11.06) qualified her for the NCSA National Swimming Championships.

When asked about her most influential swim mentors and what they’ve taught her, Natalie shared, “I am currently swimming for Coach Charlie Kennedy at Suburban Swim Club, and he has really taught me how to love the sport. At the Academy of Notre Dame, Head Coach Brigit Barry is really great at bringing the team together to have fun and swim fast. Finally, Coach Andrew is an assistant coach at SSC and Notre Dame, and he has helped me to believe in myself and make the most of my training.”
