Friends attending his signing ceremony joked Dylan Lake decided to move to Lakeland, Fla., just so he wouldn’t forget the name of his new town.
But there’s no joking about Lake’s talent in the water.
Lake, a Los Alamos High School senior, signed his National Letter of Intent to attend Florida Southern College during a ceremony at the school last week. Lake will join the FSC Mocs’ men’s swim team next year.
The Mocs — short for Moccasins — finished eighth in the NCAA Division-II National Swimming Championships last month and Lake is thrilled to be joining the program.
Moreover, he’s happy to be through with the process of figuring out where he might spend the next four years.
“I’m pretty excited that I finally made a decision,” Lake said. “It’s final.”
Lake is among the top swimmers Los Alamos’ boys program has produced in recent years. During his time in high school, Lake turned into a formidable distance swimmer.
He did not swim for the Hilltoppers during the 2009-10 or 2010-11 prep seasons, electing instead to swim in the club circuit. Foregoing prep swimming is fast becoming a popular option of top high-school aged swimmers throughout the country.
