Personal Highlights

Currently Swims for The Claremont Club 7 years. Swam for the Chino Valley Dolphins for 5 years prior. Is a sophomore this year. Loves to read and write. Is very strong. At a USC swim camp 2014, age 13, she held a plank during a contest between all attending athletes, and held it for 10 minutes, finally falling after several minutes of being required to alternate legs/arms. She came in second to a senior male. She is very tenacious! She is an excellent track sprinter as well; 100, 200 & 400. Ran for the Claremont Cougars at age 12 and was one of their fastest. Too bad she prefers swimming, and now water polo. She started her first 2 summer programs and now high school program last year. Is a sprinter, rarely losing the ball, and plays 1, 2, and 5. She was the CHS Frosh Girls Team Captain as of 1-9-17. She got the Coaches Award for the year. She is a rule follower and very helpful, and very assertive. She made Varsity swim as well in the butterfly and 500 free. Her sister was a senior and swim team captain, Katrina Strash, who is now attending UVA on a rowing scholarship. Talya is a Junior Olympian many times over in swim. Swam in Palomares League Finals, placing 7th in the fly and 11th in the 500 free. Will try the 200 free next year. Got her first varsity letter for swimming May 2017! Joined CHAWP Waterpolo last summer. Mom was a gymnast and Dad a hurdler. Member of Federation of Christian Athletes 2016 & 2017. Starting to be interested in ROTC, Military and Law Enforcement? Sprinter for the JV Waterpolo team at CHS. Best 50 fly split 28.03 3-17-18. Medals 3-17-18 in the 100 fly -5th, 500 free -8th, and 200 medley relay (fly) 1st at Raiders Invite in Rowland Hts. 7th at Palomares League Finals in Fly and 12th in the 500 Free. Went to CIF Div II Finals for 200 Medley Relay and 200 Free Relay. Our team took 14th in Free and 23rd in Medley. Rejoined TCC Swim Club last week and have been practicing every evening since and Sat. mornings. Have my first TCC Invite LC this weekend since 2016. Volunteered 2 hrs this morning, 9-22-18 at TCC "Art of Giving", a fund raiser for the families of cancer victims. Collected 40 pairs of shoes for Angel Bins 1-26-19. At Mt. SAC Invite 3-16-19, swam my leg of the 400 Free relay 3 secs faster than ever. Swam in the JO's and did well individually and in two relays. My last one.
Am deleting my interest in Rowing unless there is no swimming at the college I am interested in. Thank you!!
