Allie Wildstein ‘22

A talented swimmer with her best ahead of her, Allie Wildstein ‘22 is the Wyvern of the Week.

While just a freshman, Wildstein is already in her fourth year swimming at KO including two seasons as a member of the varsity team.

“Allie is a talented distance swimmer and also anchors our 400 Free relay and is a talented backstroker,” Kingswood Oxford coach Kata Baker said. “She's a hard worker and has a great energy and spirit. I'm so glad to know we'll have her for a full four years!”

Wildstein won both the 500 and 200 IM at Kingswood Oxford’s  meet against Canterbury and earned a best time at the Wilbraham meet in the 500, winning the event with a time of 5:50.66.

A swimmer for the past eight years, Wildstein swims for a club team as well and just likes to compete, regardless of the event.

I do often swim the 500 free and 100 back. My favorite event is the 500 free and it doesn't really matter to me what events I swim,” Wildstein said.

Wildstein has enjoyed the season so far and feels the team is trending upward since it was able to add a few more swimmers this season. As the championship portion of the schedule approaches, Wildstein just wants to go low and support her team.

“For me personally, I would like to go under 5:45 for my 500 and for the team just to keep supporting each other and having fun,” she said.
