Junior Alex Gettig is a multi sport athlete as he competes in both swim and ultimate frisbee. Gettig joined a swimming program because he saw it as a way to stay active.

“I really thought swim was a good way to not only exercise but to kind of clear my mind,” Gettig said. “My parents signed me up for it and I thought it checked all my boxes.”

Gettig started playing ultimate frisbee in seventh grade. Influence from peers and the friendly aspect of the game drew him in.

“One of my close friends was playing and really enjoyed it,” Gettig said. “[My favorite part] would probably be just the spirit of the game.”
