                 Profile Lylah Theriac 

Who is someone to keep an eye on this swim season? Lylah Theriac is a freshman at Mooresville High School. She is a varsity cross country and track runner and is also a varsity swimmer. In middle school she received many school records for swimming including 200 Free, 100 IM, 50 Free, 50 Fly, 100 Free, 400 Free and 100 Breast. She has very high expectations for herself this swim season. 

“I think I have a chance of making it to state in swimming,” Theriac said.

It’s only the beginning of the season, but there are many people with high expectations for her. One being Lilly Deverick, a Sophomore at MHS, who has swam with Theriac for a total of two years. 

“I’m really excited to see her swim in high school. I think she has the potential to break a lot of Mooresville records,” Deverick said. 

Theriac has many different compelling traits, not only with her physical abilities but also her inviting and kind aura. She is noticeably a hard worker with a good drive to complete tasks. 

“I think her best trait is that she is able to still have fun during a really hard practice and support others,” Deverick said.

Moreover, Theriac is the one to watch this swim season. On the very first meet of the year on 11-18-22 she broke two different school records. The first was 100 Butterfly with a time of 59.27 seconds and the other was the 100 Backstroke with a 1:00.32. Catch her swimming next tomorrow at home at 5:30 p.m. against Cascade.
