By Janet Buccirosso

This month’s female athlete is a senior at Dundee High School. The seventeen year old participates on the Vikings swim team. Swimming is the only sport she plays at school. Lauren’s favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys.
Lauren’s favorite subject is Chemistry because she says it is interesting to learn about elements and how the world works.
Lauren lives with her mom, Tara and her dad, James. They also have a pet dog. For a hobby, she enjoys Band.
With a GPA of 3.9,
Lauren plans on attending the University of Michigan to pursue a career in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. She has not yet decided whether or not to continue swimming while she is in college.
When asked her advice for students deciding on whether to participate in a sport Lauren states, “You become a part of a family and make lifelong friendships along the way”.
Sarah Eubanks, Varsity Girls Swim Coach, has this to say about Lauren, “(She) is a great leader and hard-worker. With so many underclassmen she is a great role model for our younger student athletes. She is the epitome of a successful student athlete”.
