Erie Times-News Breakout Girls Swimmer/Diver of the Week: Heather Sternby, Meadville

Heather Sternby

Meadville junior Heather Sternby is not only looking to repeat as a District 10 champion, she wants more swimming titles this winter.

In a dominant effort against Central Tech, Sternby won the 50 free (26.01 seconds) and the 100 butterfly (1:06.69) before swimming on the winning 200 medley (2:04.36) and 400 free (4:06.40) relay teams.

Sternby won the D-10 Class AAA championship in the 100 butterfly last winter and racked up three silver medals as well.

With plenty of Class AAA experience, Sternby is a threat to win multiple D-10 titles in a few weeks.
