The district and board recently honored eighth-grade swim champion, Youssef Ibrahim, who went undefeated in 1-meter diving season.
Grand Avenue’s Ibrahim, who swims on the Bellmore-Merrick Sharks team, won this event at both the Division A Championships and the Nassau County Championships – including scoring a personal best of 491.05 points.

At the New York State Championships held in Buffalo in early March, Ibrahim’s score was 80 more than the second-place competitor.
“This is an exceptional feat for an eighth-grade athlete,” said Board Trustee JoAnn DeLauter.

In addition to diving, Ibrahim also plays soccer for Grand Avenue, studies robotics as part of the STEP Scholar Academy at Hofstra University and enjoys playing the piano, fishing and ice skating in his spare time.
