Senior Willy Lee prepares to warm up for his next race.

Senior Willy Lee, another noteworthy swimmer, also raised the standards for Paly swimming. Lee’s most significant accomplishment is his school record in the 100-yard backstroke with his mark of 49.94 seconds.

“[I was proud of] breaking 50 [seconds] in the 100 [yard] backstroke last year at CCS and winning second for our school in that event,” Lee said.

Like his fellow Paly swimmers, Lee is currently looking into different collegiate swim opportunities. He is weighing his options, deciding between schools on the East Cost

“For college I am deciding between Columbia University and Brown University, but I am leaning towards Brown as my first choice,” Lee said.

Lee and his swimming partners are looking at different schools all over the nation, like Stanford and Brown University.

“I am going to miss them,” Lee said. “We have been swimming together for over seven years and they have become close friends of mine.”
