Renée Roberts stands at the Wrangell pool she has trained in since she was 9 years old. The high school senior recently signed with Western Colorado University to attend school there and compete on its women's swimming and dive team.

For nearly 10 years, Renèe Roberts has dedicated her life to swimming, and all those miles swum are taking her places.

Roberts, a standout member of the Wrangell High School swim team, signed with Western Colorado University and will be one of 12 freshmen this fall joining the women's swimming and dive team.

When she was 9 years old, Renee started swimming for fun, but was learning and practicing swim strokes right away. In 2016, at 12, she joined the Wrangell Swim Club and began improving her times in various competitions. It was also the first year the club began competing in meets.
