Erie Times-News Breakout Swimmer of the Week: Julia Rahner, McDowell

Julia Rahner

McDowell senior swimmer Julia Rahner came into her final season with big expectations. Through one week, she is dominating in the pool and living up to those expectations.

Rahner won the 50-yard freestyle and 100 freestyle in a dominant win over Meadville and participated in the winning 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams.

Rahner then won all four of those events Monday during a sweep of Warren. The Trojans are off to a quick 2-0 start, and Rahner has been a big part of their success.
