Female All Star: Ava Zaugg Age: 12 Years on the Team: 3
Ava is hard-working, focused, driven and—most importantly—extremely positive and pleasant to be around! Ava joined the Tide three years ago when the Indianola Y opened, quickly picking up the skills needed to move up within our groups. Ava has been a Tide Legend (team challenge) all three years, and she holds a team record and has been a state and regional qualifier as well. In addition to her swim skills, what stands out about Ava is her attitude and the fact that she is a genuinely nice person who would do anything for her team!
Male All Star: Lane Bindel Age: 14 Years on the Team: 2
Lane quickly became one of the family two years ago after transferring to the Tide from another Y. Now, it’s hard to imagine the team without him! Since joining us Lane has earned a Tide Legend title (team challenge), swam his first year of high school and is now a state and regional qualifier. Team members describe Lane as “encouraging” and showing “good sportsmanship,” and they say that he has a way about him that makes everyone feel important. Lane works hard and has a great attitude — in and out of the pool.
