Anna Peter will be a senior at Manhattan, who wants to swim in college. Kristen Heiss swam four years at Texas A&M. And the Montana gal has already taken away a lot from the former U.S. National team member.
"I've learned that something can be really hard but you just have to stick with it. She said she's gone thru rough patches to just like everyone else but as long as you stick with it you should come out on top," said Anna Peter.
"Almost all of them come from Montana, and it's not a huge swimming state, there's no university programs here so to help them see there is the possibility to swim after they graduate from high school here," said Kristen Heiss.
Anna loves having someone to learn from like Kristen, who makes things exciting, yet difficult.
"The camp wouldn't be the same for one thing she brings a whole new aspect into it that makes it really fun but challenging at the same time," said Peter.
"The kids are so great they have to much enthusiasm so exciting to see all the talent and their excitement to continue to swim. Even if they stop after high school just to share something about swimming," said Heiss.
Kristen wants her swimmers to remember one thing: It's all about the relationships you form.
"If I look back it's not the races I remember or the swim meets it's that four or five years after graduating from college my teammates are still my best friends my high school teammates my club teammates I just went to a wedding last year from a girl who I knew when I was ten, swimming," said Heiss.
