Analiese Marie Bova
Hammonton Stingrays Swim Team
Analiese Marie Bova began her Hammonton Stingray swim career as a 4-year-old on the Coaches' Squad. From there, Analiese quickly progressed as a swimmer and began to supplement her summer swim experience by joining the acclaimed Mighty Marlins winter swim team. Her devotion to swimming dovetailed perfectly with her innate love of helping others as she began to aid her coach by spending countless hours mentoring the Coaches' Squad as well as other younger swimmers. This selflessness was recognized as Analiese was the inaugural recipient of the Annamae Jacobs Award, in recognition of her outstanding commitment to the sport of swimming and her dedication and loyalty to the swim team. Last year, Analiese was formally appointed to the position of assistant coach and continues to serve in that capacity while also competing on the team for her 14th and final summer. Analiese comes from a swim family, as her sister Sophia and brother Anthony are former and current Stingrays. She recently graduated with honors from the Atlantic County Institute of Technology where she was a member of the Technical National Honor Society and Varsity Cheerleading squad. This spring Analiese earned the highest score in the history of her program on the New Jersey Cosmetology Board Exam and she plans to attend Atlantic Cape Community College on a full scholarship this fall.
