Quote:  Dawson continues to gain strength and better his times each season. He has improved his stroke technique and starts.  His goal for next season is to perfect turns and streamlines.  Training year round helps him keep a strong momentum to get better and faster.  Dawson’s goal is to “just keep beating my own times in the pool, this will get me to where I need to be.”
