Hilton Head Island High swimmer Lilla Felix’s 2013-14 high school season ended with winning a state championship and being named South Carolina’s AAA swimmer of the year, but her competitive swimming continues year round.  Since then, she qualified to compete in the prestigious Arena Grand Prix meet in Charlotte, which attracted a number of Olympic and NCAA stars.  Lilla also recently achieved her Winter Senior National and Summer Junior National cuts, which will enable her to compete at the USA Swimming Senior National meet in December.  A senior, Lilla challenges herself in IB and AP classes and plans to continue swimming in college while pursuing a degree in engineering.
