Fox Chapel senior swim team members David Dering and Lydia Turnquist were named All-American Athlete Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award recipients in swimming earlier this month.
The National Strength and Conditioning Association recognizes high school and collegiate athletes whose athletic accomplishments reflect their dedication to strength and conditioning, as well as academics and integrity.
“David is dedicated to his sport and improving his performance through strength and conditioning. His leadership and work ethic are noticed by his teammates and coaches,” said Fox Chapel strength and conditioning coach Brandon Peifer, who nominated both student-athletes.
“Lydia leads by example through her consistency and willingness to always give her best. She is respected by her teammates and coaches alike.”
