WHS star also wins bronze at Jr. National Meet

Warwick High School swimmer Emily Cameron, a three-time gold medal winner at the PIAA State Swimming Championships in 2010 and 2011, recently competed at both the U.S. National Swim Championships and in two events at the Junior National Meet which was held at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif.

Cameron, a junior-to-be, finished 17th in the 200 Individual Medley (long course) with a time of 2:16.24 in the National Meet. The time, based on swimmer age groups, left her just two-hundredths of a second from making a trip to Lima, Peru with the U.S. Junior National Team this week.

She also swam the 400 I.M. during the Junior National Meet and earned a bronze medal in a time of 4:48.24.

Cameron, coached by Casey Coble of the Lancaster Aquatic Club, also competed this summer on the undefeated Woodridge team, coached by Heidi Cicala.

After a short break away from the pool, Cameron will turn her attention toward preparing for the USA Olympic Trials, to be held in Omaha, Neb. from June 25 to July 2, 2012. Cameron has currently qualified for the trials in four events — the 200 I.M., 400 I.M., 100 breastroke and 200 breastroke.
