Lauren Speedlight--like most of her teammates on the Montreal Rockets Swimming and Diving Team--is not accustomed to coming up short. Not in the pool, and not in the classroom.
"I've been swimming for my entire life, and have been lucky enough to compete throughout the US. Though winning is my top goal and my times push the limits of most D1 college teams, I am interested in finding a scholarship at a D2 or D3 liberal arts college in the Midwest."
When not on the court, I love spending time with my family. We have a ranch and I am responsible for hauling hay and keeping the horses exercised. Hours of hard work have made me stronger than my friends who are city kids.

Janis is by far the hardest working hitter I've ever worked with. Her 'can-do' attitdue is infectious and always picks her team up.Alexander Stremovich [email protected] 619-555-1212 Modern High School, Salinas, CA
Janis is 5'11" and plays like she is 6'4". She is tremendously athletic and makes up for her lack of height with remarkable drive and a tremendous vertical.John Streamlander [email protected] 310-555-1212 Club Montreal, Salinas, CA
