Sewanee Tigersharks Celebrate Graduated Seniors Lucie Watch and Zolon Knoll

    On Sunday, July 10, the Sewanee Tigershark swim team held its annual End of Season Potluck and honored two swimmers, Lucie Watch and Zolon Knoll, for their outstanding contributions to the team in their final season as Tigershark swimmers.

    Lucie Watch moved to Sewanee from the Atlanta area in 2019, and she joined the Sewanee Tigershark swim team in the summer of 2021 when the team returned to the water for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to her move to Sewanee, Watch swam with Spartan Aquatic Club, and she also competed with the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee Swim Team during the 21-22 season. A talented swimmer and fierce competitor, Watch finished a close second to teammate Maya Mauzy in the Sewanee Tigersharks 15-18 Girls High Point category for the 2022 season. Head Coach Marion Knoll praised Watch saying, “Lucie’s positive energy and cheerful spirit made her a delight to coach, and she was an incredible role model and inspiration for younger swimmers”. Watch graduated from SAS this May, and she will attend UGA in the fall with the intention of majoring in Psychology.

    Zolon Knoll started swimming with the Sewanee Tigersharks in 2009, and this summer marked his fourteenth season on the Tigershark Swim Team. Knoll’s Sewanee Tigershark swim experiences led to year-round swimming with Mountain Aquatic Club, Tullahoma Swim Club, and Huntsville Swim Association, and he also swam with the St. Andrew’s Sewanee Swim Team. In addition to competing as a Tigershark this summer, Knoll was the Lead Coach of the Junior 1/Junior 2 groups, and the Assistant Coach for the Presenior/Senior Groups. Knoll was the Sewanee Tigershark 15-18 Boys High Point Recipient. Head Coach Marion Knoll praised Knoll’s contributions to the team saying, “Zolon’s ability to communicate technical instruction in a positive and direct manner made him an excellent coach and teammate this summer”. A 2021 graduate of SAS, Knoll is a rising sophomore and collegiate swimmer at Centre College in Danville, KY where he plans to major in International Studies.
