Leah Goldman named Swimmer of the Year in Palo Alto’s All-Pal Bay Division

Incoming Duke freshman Leah Goldman has been named the Girls Swimmer of the Year in Palo Alto’s All-Pal Bay Division, as announced Monday by the Palo Alto Weekly in California.

Goldman, who completed her prep career at Burlingame High School in Burlingame, Calif., was the Central Coast Section’s champion in the 100-yard butterfly in 2014 while also taking second in the 200 IM. A six-time National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association All-America selection, the future Blue Devil is a summer and winter Nationals qualifier and represented the U.S. internationally last summer at the Maccabiah Games in Israel where she won five medals.
