Boys Swimming: Rock Ridge Freestyler Trace Wall Named February 2019 Athlete of the Month


Loudoun County, Va. – In an effort to better recognize student-athletes who positively affect high school sports in Loudoun County, Power Train and LoCoSports have teamed up to announce Rock Ridge High School junior Trace Wall as the Power Train and LoCoSports Athlete of the Month for February 2019.

Wall capped off his junior season at the VHSL 5A State championships on February 16, where he won the 50-yard freestyle and finished runner up in the 100-yard freestyle. Wall also helped the Phoenix boys to runner up finishes in the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays, as Rock Ridge placed second in the team competition.

“Trace is an amazing kid, student, and athlete,” Rock Ridge head coach Andrea Wardell said. “He impacts our team with his positive attitude and love for swimming.”

Throughout the season, Wall turned in some of the best times in Loudoun County, including the second fastest time in both the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.

“Trace has a great work ethic and a constant drive to better himself,” Wardell said. “He’s always pushing himself to his limits and giving all he has to the sport, which makes him the talented athlete he is.”

The Power Train and LoCoSports Athlete of the Month is selected from nominations based on student-athletes having great success, hustle, work ethic, attitude and heart.

Power Train invites all athletes and teammates of the month to either of their Loudoun locations for a free month of training.
