Patch stopped by South River High School on Jan. 31 and spoke with senior Michael Seaberg, 17, about his swimming career and life at SRHS.
Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch: What is your favorite South River swimming memory?
Michael Seaberg: I would say either winning states sophomore year or racing Michael Phelps in the 100-meter breast when I was 15. He came to a meet that his original club hosts and he kept returning to swim in it for fun. He beat me by a lot but it was still fun.
Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch: How is your season going so far and what are your expectations heading into the postseason?
Seaberg: Good. Our regular season has ended and the postseason is beginning. I want to win states. I have been working hard, but states is where it gets really hard because Montgomery County has a lot of good swimmers.
Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch: What other groups or activities do you participate in at South River High School?
Seaberg: I swim for South River and the Naval Academy Athletic Club. I am also in SGA.
Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch: What are your plans after high school?
Seaberg: Duke University to swim—I was on campus for only like 10 minutes but it felt right. The other ones didn’t feel that way. I want to major in electrical engineering.
