OJR's Feiser selected All-Area Swimmer of the Year

BUCKTOWN — For his entire high school career, Owen J. Roberts swimming standout Sam Feiser has been one of the area's best in the sprint freestyle and butterfly.
But it seems he saved the best for last, putting together his best season yet in his senior year.
Feiser captured two individual state medals, taking fifth in the 50-yard freestyle and also the 100 butterfly at the PIAA Class AAA Championships. His performance at states followed the District 1-AAA Championships where he won the gold medal in the 50 free and the silver in the 100 fly.
He played a major role in the Wildcats' relays success in the postseason, anchoring their 400 relay team that placed eighth at states, won the silver at districts and also anchored the 200 free relay that won the district bronze and reached the consolation round at states, placing 13th overall.
The Mercury's All-Area Boys Swimmer of the Year credits his OJR team for excelling even more this year.
"We all worked harder as a team this year,' Feiser said. "There was definitely more of a drive to want to do well as a team, which pushed me and everybody else to do better. And everybody did.'
