Ada teen swimmer to represent Team Ohio

By Cort Reynolds

Ada teenager Lily Baumgartner is set to compete at the national level for USA Swimming.

Lily has qualified for Team Ohio in the 100 butterfly event after swimming a time of 1:07.18 this past weekend in the Ohio Swimming Long Course Championships at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

Lily will now compete for the State of Ohio at the USA Central Zone Championships in Elkhart, Indiana August 6-8, 2021. This is the highest level of competition for USA Swimming competitors age 14-and-under.

In order to qualify for this level of competition, swimmers must meet or best a national AAA motivational time in each event.

Area swimmers represented in this meet are from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Lake Erie, the Ozarks, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Lily, age 14, is a member of the Lima Barracudas YMCA and USA swim teams under head coach April Dorman. Lily will be a freshman at Ada High School this fall where she intends to play volleyball and swim for the Bulldogs.
