Swimming Relay Runs In Family

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) --- A very talented and hard-working group of area high school swimmers will be competing at the regional meet in Owensboro Friday and Saturday. One boys relay will include South Warren senior Trey Wolfram, Spartans junior Neal Wolfram, and South Warren freshman Drew Wolfram.

It's no coincidence that they share the last name because Trey, Neal, and Drew are brothers. The Wolfram brothers are on the defending regional champion 400 freestyle relay and will be on multiple relays together Friday and Saturday.

"Having to work hard and then having your hard work show in the pool at meets," said Neal Wolfram, the middle brother. "And a lot 'oh, how does he go fast?' It's just that...that person works hard...and goes fast."

No doubt there's plenty of love and competitive fire among the Wolfram brothers.

"I think it helps with all three of us," said Drew Wolfram, the youngest Wolfram brother who was a member of the Bowling Green East Little League baseball team that competed in the 2016 Little League World Series. "And what each other does on the team. Competing throughout practice. Pushing each other farther."

When asked if being on the same relay will be a cherished memory 40 years from now, Trey Wolfram, the oldest Wolfram brother, responded in an affirmative manner.

"I think so. I mean, I don't know why you wouldn't," said Trey Wolfram. "No one else really has three brothers on the same (swimming relay) team."
