John Klemanski, 15, a sophomore at Ferndale High School, will be recognized
at a banquet at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 4, at Roma Hall by members of Michigan
Amateur Aquatics (MAA).
John achieved a national rating of fifth in his age group for the 220
yard breaststroke at a meet at Scott Park, Ohio; time, 2:54.2.
"John's number five rating in national competition is mighty good for
a young man who was out of training more than a month due to pneumonia;
three weeks for an infection; and four weeks for a broken hand", said his
coach, Tom Sullivan.
