Prep Star of the Week: Olivia Smoliga of Glenbrook South


For week’s Good Day Prep Star of the Week, we head to the pool, where we meet Glenbrook South Junior Olivia Smoliga, one of the finest swimmers in the entire country.

Smoliga swims the 50 free in state record time, a record that had lasted 15 years, and she also won the 100 free, where she set a record the day before in the preliminaries.

Smoliga just got back from the Winter Nationals in Atlanta, where she placed second in the women's 100 backstroke, competing against the very best swimmers of any age in the entire country.

Earlier this year, Smoliga took fifth place in the 50 meter back at the World Junior Championships in Leema, Peru.

Smoliga is from Glenbrook South High School and the Glenview Titan Aquatic Club.
