Swimmer Samantha Tubbs is inspiring!

Swimmer Samantha Tubbs is inspiring!

What inspiration I found in the May 24 story about competitive swimmer Samantha Tubbs ["Teen finds her purpose in the pool"].

As a parent of a D-1 collegiate swimmer, I know a little about the tremendous dedication the sport demands. Ms. Tubbs clearly has the dedication, focus and athleticism, and I wish her every continued success in her effort to make the 2016 Paralympic Team.

Swim fast, Samantha--you are making the Fredericksburg area very proud!
