- Athlete Representatives
- Governance of USA Swimming
- Responsibilities of Club and Zone Representatives
Our Athlete Representatives are enthusiastic about swimming and are willing to help better the sport by working with other athletes, officials, coaches, volunteers and others involved with the sport. They will be working on the “dry side” of swimming, serving both their Zone and on a committee within Pacific Swimming.

Zone 1 North
Grace Tramack - My name is Grace Tramack and I am going into my junior year at Gunn High School. I swim for Palo Alto Stanford Aquatics under Dana Kirk. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family and reading. I am very excited to be an athlete rep and to be working on the new athlete newsletter!
Joshua Camerino - My name is Josh Camerino, and I’m currently a senior at Carlmont High School in Belmont, California. I have been swimming competitively for nine years and have been training with the Otter Swim Club in Belmont. In high school, I have been swimming for the varsity swim team for the past two years, and I am also a member of the California Scholarship Federation and the Filipino Club. Aside from swimming, during the summer I work as a lifeguard and a summer camp instructor. Through my years in swimming, I have been very fortunate to have participated in programs that Pacific Swimming offers to support its athletes, from the Adam Szmidt Memorial Camp for 10 & Unders to the Western Zone All Stars. As an athlete representative, I am looking forward to being involved in other aspects of the sport as well.

Sophia Harrison - My name is Sophia Harrison and I'm currently 17 years old and a senior at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, CA. I swim at Santa Clara Swim Club under Coach Allison Beebe. When I'm not swimming, I love to read or go outdoors and hike! I love to swim and I am very excited to be an athlete rep!

Tessie Scavone - Hello, my name is Tessie Scavone and I am currently a senior at Foothill High School. I swim for Foothill High in the spring and for my year-round club team, Tri Valley Aquatics. Outside of school and swim I enjoy the outdoors, hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach, skiing, and much more. I’m extremely excited to be an Athletic Representative for Zone 2 because I have been swimming under Pacific Swimming for almost eight years now and swimming for almost my whole life! I want to give back to swimming in anyway I can.
Tyler Lu - My name is Tyler Lu. This fall I will be a junior at Quarry Lane school. Seven years ago, I began my journey as an all year round swimmer. I swim with the Pleasanton Seahawks and I take great pride being a Seahawk. Our team represents unity, spirit, and a deep competitive drive; everything that embodies a great athlete, and teammate. Aside from swimming, one of my passion is finding creative outlets to make a difference in the community. Four years ago, I started a non-profit organization: The Waterwish Foundation (WWF). The concept of the foundation is simple, yet invigorating. WWF works with local organizations, such as the YMCA, to provide goggles to kids in lower income neighborhoods. In the last several years, I have donated more than 600 brand new goggles to kids all over the Bay Area. The most basic swim equipment as the goggle, will help them learn how to swim and swim happily! As a Pacific Swimming Representative, my goal is to represent the athletes in my Zone, and all Pacific Athletes with the goal to unite athletes, teams, families, and the swim community to achieve higher excellence and efficiency.
Brandon Shi - Hi, my name is Brandon and I am currently a senior in high school. I swim for San Ramon Valley Aquatics. I have been swimming for more than nine years. I decided to apply for this position as an athlete representative because I wanted to be more involved with the sport of swimming outside of the water. In my free time, I enjoy watching TV or movies and reading good books.
Robert Mitchell - Hi my name is Robert Mitchell. I swim for the Terrapin Swim Team in Concord, California. I am a junior at Napa High School and have been competitively swimming since I was 6 years old. I consider myself as a mid- to long-distance freestyler, which my favorite event is the mile. Outside of swimming I am in my 8th year playing the trumpet and happy to be in the Napa High marching and concert band. I live in Napa with my loving family and deaf French Bulldog whose name is Mickey. My favorite my place to be is at the pool. I am super proud, honored, and excited to represent my fellow teammates as an Athlete Rep for Zone 2.
Taylor Thomas - Hello, my name is Taylor Thomas and I'm a sophomore at College Park High School. I have been swimming for six years and I'm on Orinda Aquatics. My team believes in character first and being a good leader and I do my best to live up to that. 200 butterfly and 100 backstroke are my favorite events. I also like open water swimming and have swam the Tiburon Mile. Outside of swimming I like to draw and read. I'm really excited about being an athlete representative.
