POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Our Lady Of Lourdes alumnus Blair Wegescheide, recently graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, and will attend the graduate school in the fall, but in between will be competing in Olympic trials in the backstroke.

A standout athlete at Lourdes from 2008 through 2011, Blair set school records in the 100 back and was a member of the 200 free and 200 medley relays that also set school records. She was the first freshman to qualify for and compete at the New York State Championships, and as a senior, finished first in the 100 back and second in the 100 free at the divisional meet

Blair was named All-League four consecutive years from 2008 to 2011 as well as All-Section in 2008 and 2011.

A member of the Patriot Swim Team for five years under coach Larry Collins, Blair was the only member of the team to reach NCSA Junior Nationals. She is a Patriots Swim Team record holder in the 100 back and 200 back.
