“I am so proud of Gavin and all he has accomplished during his high school swimming career. Gavin has always been so positive and is often the first swimmer in the water at practice. I would describe Gavin as kind, supportive and passionate. He truly wants to do and be his best. He never complains and always looks on the bright side. I am going to miss Gavin and his positive attitude but look forward to seeing what he does in the future” said HHS Swimming coach, Jenna Guadio.
Congratulations, Gavin, on a phenomenal last year at Huntley High School! Your positive attitude and outstanding talent do not go unnoticed. Keep up the great work!
