THOMAS CAPS '22 RANKED NO. 1 IN NATION

Thomas Caps '22 just became the third student at Le Jardin Academy to qualify for USA Swimming Junior Nationals, and that's more than any other school in Hawaii! Thomas, along with Alana Barthel and Luke Faurot will head to Austin, Texas in early December to represent the  Aulea Swim Club.  at the competition. At last week's Bill Smith Invitational, Thomas qualified in the 200 breast, setting a new Hawaii record in the 13-14 age group, and now ranks No. 1 in the nation in his age group for this event.  He also broke a 13-14 record in the 100 breast, breaking a 42-year-old record.

 

As for what's next for Thomas? He says "I want to get into a college with a good swim team because, from what I can tell, the friendships made with teammates and the facilities at college allow you to reach new heights." But until then he says, "I'll keep a low profile and focus on the process, instead of getting caught up in my future as an athlete so as to not set any expectations. Maybe I will make the team. Maybe I won't. Giving up, however, is never an option."
