In a normal, routine warmup before a workout Andrew Vorobev twisted his ankle.

Unable to walk three days before the Lake Forest Sectional, Vorobev somehow pushed through and qualified for the IHSA state competition in both the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 butterfly.

"Andrew is a kid who does everything the right way," Giants’ swim coach Tim Sirois said. "It was really tough for him the last week. He couldn't walk last Wednesday, (Feb. 14), Thursday or Friday and he still qualified."
