Colleen Callahan capped off a historically sensational high school swimming career with two more titles at the 2013 NJSIAA Meet of Champions. The Atlantic City senior's latest dominant display earned her the most votes in our latest 97.3 ESPN High School Athlete of the Week pole.
Callahan became the first female swimmer to win eight individual events during her career by claiming victories in the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke at the event. She broke her own meet record in the 200 IM.
Callahan, who will continue her swimming career at the University of Tennessee, collected 45 percent of the total vote. Atlantic City classmate Isaiah Graves finished second in the poll with 41 percent.
Ocean City senior Julia Duggan followed in third (10 percent) after leading her team to a South Jersey basketball championship. Region 8 wrestling champs Tom Gattinella (St. Augustine) and Billy Ward (Buena) rounded out the voting.
