Swimming - 2008

ROB GILCHRIST was a member of the Corning District swimming team for four years at the varsity level. He swam the 200 freestyle, 100 backstroke and was a member of the freestyle and medley relay teams. He shined at all these events but none better than the 200 freestyle where he was a three time sectional champion. He earned his first sectional crown as a sophomore and repeated as a junior and senior. As a junior and senior, Rob was the top point getter for the team. He was named to the ALL-STC team three times in three different events as a sophomore and four events as a junior and senior including first team in the 200 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Rob was named the West High Athlete of the month in each of his last three years in high school. During his senior year, he was named as the George Bacalles Memorial Award winner. He still holds the district and pool records in the 200 medley relay. Following his 1997 graduation from West High, Rob attended and swam for Springfield College and is currently the Aquatics & Sports Supervisor for the Parks & Recreation Department in Bloomington, Indiana.
