Southeast’s Suzy Jacobs – Tommy Leach’s Shelter Insurance Athlete Of The Month

By Hayden Swope

Suzy Jacobs, a swimmer at Southeast, was chosen as the Shelter Insurance Athlete of the Month. As a junior, Jacobs made an impressive run leading her team in points this season.

“Being chosen as one of the athletes of the month is very unexpected as there are so many different athletes at Southeast and, well, a very small swim team,” Jacobs said. “I am very honored to be one of the athletes chosen.”

Jacobs spent the season dropping times and growing her abilities, all while leading the Southeast swim team to a successful season.

“My goals for the year were focusing on improving my strokes and getting faster in my best events, as well as expanding the Southeast girls’ swim team,” Jacobs said. “My fellow swim captains and I were able to increase the number of swimmers for our team this year which was amazing. Personally, my swim goals have improved as well as my strokes, but I’m still hoping to improve through the rest of the season as well as my senior year.” 

Jacobs also swims for the Wichita Swim Club and plans on spending her offseason training for her senior year. Jacobs said the state tournament is one of her biggest goals for next swim season. 

“After high school I plan on attending college, though I am still undecided where,” Jacobs said. “On the other hand, I do know I want to major in marine biology and photography.”
