CANAJOHARIE — Canajoharie High School senior Joe Trembley signed a letter of intent Thursday to swim at Le Moyne College in Syracuse this fall.
Trembley, the son of Steve and Shannon Trembley, will accept a partial athletic scholarship to swim at Le Moyne. The college’s swim team is a competitive NCAA Division II program. Trembley will major in the college’s highly regarded accounting program.“Joe has been a true competitor and a true teammate over the five years he swam for Canajoharie-Fort Plain,” Coach Phil Horender said. “He was the most consistent swimmer and points scorer on our team during this time. We applaud him for all of his achievements and wish him the best of luck at Le Moyne.”
Trembley’s achievements in the pool earned him berths in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association state championship meet this past season in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.
He turned in times of 21.98 in the 50-yard freestyle and 49.13 in the 100-yard freestyle at the event.
Trembley was a five-year varsity swimmer for Canajoharie-Fort Plain and a two-year captain of the squad. He qualified for the state championship meet twice in his career and received the Section II Sportsmanship Award Winner at States, as voted on by the section’s coaches.
Trembley is the school record holder in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 48.32 and is the 2018 Section II champion in the 50-yard freestyle and runner-up in the 100-yard freestyle. He anchored C-FP’s 200-yard freestyle relay team that placed second at sectionals and the 400-yard freestyle relay team that finished third at the sectional meet.
