Mt. Lebanon Swimmer Sets Speedy Pace

Mt. Lebanon senior Sho Sugimoto was stunned by what he saw at his first swim practice after moving from Japan several years ago.

"Everyone was going so slowly," he said. "In Japan, everyone goes fast, even in practice."

Sugimoto had no trouble adapting to the U.S. style of swimming and won two WPIAL Class AAA championships in the 100-yard freestyle in 2008 and 2009. He is favored to make it three in a row when the WPIAL finals get underway Thursday at Pitt's Trees Pool.
