Congratulations Promote the Youth Scholar Athlete of the Month, Meredith Applegate!
Meredith is a Junior at Charlotte Catholic where she is a big part of the 2016 State Champion Girls Swimming team. Meredith also swims competitively for SwimMac. This spring Meredith competed in 10 events at the 2016 North Carolina State – Short Course Senior Championships and was a finalist in seven of those ten events. She is multi-dimensional in the pool as she also competed this past fall in 12 events at the 2015 North Carolina State – Long Course Senior Championships.
Meredith recently started working out at USPC and she has already seen big improvements in her strength, which she describes as giving her an edge in the pool. Not only is Meredith an excellent swimmer, she is also very active in community service outreach and an outstanding student. She recently returned from a mission trip to Cuenca, Ecuador, where she and some of Charlotte Catholic classmates brought handwritten letters to school aged kids in a poverty stricken community in Ecuador. Her positive attitude was a huge motivation to the youth in the community she visited.
We are very proud to award Meredith with the Promote the Youth Scholar Athlete of the Month honor. Congratulations!
