Freshman John Farese has provided an immediate impact for Shorecrest's boys swim team, leaving other competitors in his wake the past two months.

At the St. Petersburg City Championships, Farese was at his best, winning the 200 free ( 1:47.54) and 500 free (4:54.07) and swimming legs on the winning 200 medley relay (1:46.38) and 400 free relay (3:30.60).

Farese has one of the top three times in Pinellas County in his two individual events. His next big meet is the upcoming district meet.
