Athlete of the Week: Baldwinsville’s Michael White Jr.

Athlete of the Week

BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Michael White Jr is known as Mikey. He is a sophomore on the varsity Baldwinsville swim team.

“When I was little, I had a pool and I just enjoyed swimming. I like the challenge I like how you set goal for yourself, and you get those goals eventually after a lot of hard work and stuff”


Speaking of hard work, Mikey trains year-round.

“I swim two hours a day and six days a week. Three days a a week I do morning practices for an hour.”


All of that hard work is paying off. His name has already been added to the record books.


“I broke a couple of modified records here at this pool and realized that’s what I’m good at.”


He also won three events in Baldwinsville’s swim meet over J-D/CBA.


“Every race is a learning experience, and you just learn with the races I guess”
