We're proud of this Marshall Champion
Pasadena's Rose Bowl Aquatics Center has selected our own Logan Clark as their 2012 Rose Bowl Aquatics Center Champion!
From the Aquatic Center's webpage on Logan:
In addition to winning gold in the 50 and 100 meter freestyle, Logan’s high school swim team at John Marshall Fundamental in Pasadena made it to CIF competition with Coach Kandis generously giving her time and expertise. Logan attributes his success to a foundation of “Faith, family, and friends”. But his success far exceeds athletic goals. He says “My goal is to help kids realize that they are special and unique in their own way and that they can accomplish a lot!”
Congratulations Logan! We're proud to have you as part of our team.
Marshall takes 1st place...everywhere!
