The Senior Spotlight shines on swimmer Anya Oryshkewych. (Just in case, it is pronounced Or-A-Skev-Ich) Anya has been swimming for NRHS for 4 years after a distinguished career swimming for the Ridgewood YMCA/USA Dolphins. Anya has earned multiple letters for the Bears, and has been equally as impressive in the classroom where she has earned the Conference Scholar Athlete Award and an invitation to join the National Honor Society. Anya is an animal lover – especially her dog – enjoys listening to music, definitely when it helps pass the time when she is lifeguarding at the North Royalton YMCA. Congratulations Anya!
