Tyler Borselle was chosen as swimmer of the month for the Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA Seals Swim Team.
Tyler has been swimming for five years and said “I really wanted to go to New England's for his own. I went at age 8 on the relay team. Last year I tried really hard but did not make it. This year I tried really, really hard and made it in two events, the 50 back and 100 back, and two relays. My goal next year is to make Zones.” Tyler also says he likes the social aspect of swimming and enjoys cheering on his friends at meets.
Tyler has had additional experiences/opportunities to develop friendships and meet Olympians and try different events through USA swimming. He also heard Michael Phelps speak at Southern.
