Miranda Peckman is shy, reserved, and unconfident. As an athlete, she always possessed the potential for greatness, but was often held back by her own uncertainties. She was nervous, but ready for success, and would go on to do just that during her high school swim career

Throughout her childhood and teenage years I have been lucky enough to see Miranda grow into the funny, confident, and resilient athlete that she is today. Her devotion and enthusiasm towards the swim team is unmatched and she is clearly a strong leader and friend to those on the team.

“I truly feel that this is more of a family than a team and I’m excited to step up as a leader during my senior season,” she said. 

While Peckman has high hopes for the coming years of her career as a high school and college athlete, her achievements have already exceeded the expectations of herself and her teammates. This year, her 200 freestyle relay broke both a meet record and an AAC record, and if the team is able to shave two seconds off of their current time, they will have punched a ticket to state.

Peckman said, “I’ll never forget the feeling of excitement before the race. Somehow I knew we were about to do really well, and once the race was over, I couldn’t shake the overwhelming shock and happiness.”

Not only is Peckman trying to improve herself as a swimmer and teammate, she is always looking to be a better daughter and sister.

“I love spending time with my family but I know that is something that I can always work on. Once we graduate, things are going to be very different, so I’m trying to make the most of the moments I have left,” she said. 

There is no doubt that Peckman is going to go on to great things both in and out of the pool, but all she has to say is,

She concluded, “Eat my bubbles.”
