TCHS Graduate to Compete in World Championships

TCHS Graduate to Compete in World Championships

An alumna of Tates Creek High School will compete in the 2024 World Aquatics Championships in Doha, Qatar, in mid-February. Rachel Klinker, who graduated in 2019, was recently added to the USA Swimming roster for the 200 butterfly. Now a senior at the University of California, she finished ninth in that event at the U.S. Summer Nationals with a time of 2:09.87. Klinker’s best time in the 200 butterfly stands at a 2:09.18.

Go, Team USA!

Did you know? Jill Klinker, Rachel’s mother, is the P.E. teacher at Clays Mill Elementary.
