The Rockdale Riptides' Delaney Willette will represent the team this weekend at the 2013 Georgia Senior Short Course Championships in Atlanta.

The 13-year-old qualified for the event in the 100-meter backstroke, 200-meter backstroke and 200-meter individual medley.

The event, which typically features swimmers ages 15 and up, will be held at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center.

"Delaney has worked very hard to get to this point," Riptides coach Sean Willette said.

Willette began swimming at the age of 4 and trains six days a week since committing to the sport at 8 years old.
