Seven Hills Senior Qualifies for Olympic Trials
Matthew Marquardt, a senior student athlete at The Seven Hills School, has qualified for Olympic Trials for the 2016 Summer Olympics, in the 200 Backstroke.
With a time of 2:03.68, Marquardt is among only three swimmers whose times dipped under 2:05 in the A final. Marquardt recently earned the highest honor in Ohio high school swimming at the State championship meet when he was named Male Swimmer of the Meet. The award is bestowed upon the single swimmer whose performances are considered the most exceptional of all the swimmers at the state championship meet under a complex formula that considers every swimmer’s times in their events. Matthew is also a co-captain of the Boys Swimming Team that won its second consecutive state championship in the meet. He has committed to swim next year at Princeton University.
