Lukesh swims to three Keystone gold medals

Nicole Rose Lukesh shows off the four medals she won at the Keystone State Games.

Nicole Rose Lukesh, a resident of Wyoming, took part in the 30th Annual Pennsylvania Keystone State Games in swimming this past summer.

The Keystone Games attracts amateur athletes not only from Pennsylvania but also from all adjoining states plus the District of Columbia. The swimming events took place at the Central York High School in York.

Lukesh won three gold medals and one silver medal in the girls 11-12 year old category. She won gold in the 50 Free (27.92), 50 Fly (29.81), and 100 IM (1:10.86), and took silver in the 100 Free (1:02.13).

In June she attended the North Baltimore Swim Clinic for a week-long swim clinic held at the North Baltimore Aquatics Club in Maryland. While there Lukesh met Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps and trained under several Olympic swim coaches including Phelps’s coach, Bob Bowman.

Nicole Rose is the daughter of Mary Rose and Joseph Lukesh.
