Rodriguez named state's Age Group Male Swimmer of the Year

Andrew Rodriguez

Ripon Community Swim Club member Andrew Rodriguez was named the Male Age Group Swimmer of the Year for Wisconsin last week Monday.

He won the award, which was voted on by coaches, in the age 12-and-under group. Ripon head coach Al Brink nominated him.

Rodriguez became the swim club’s first-ever state champion in February, winning all six of the events he swam at the 12 & Under Wisconsin Short Course State Championships.

The now 13-year-old swam times in all six events that put him among the national leaders.

He is the first member of the club to be named the Male Age Group Swimmer of the Year for Wisconsin.
