Molloy Highlights Student Athlete Sean Green, Star Swimmer!

Molloy Athletics has a rich history, full of professional athletes that have gone on to have successful playing or coaching careers. While basketball and baseball have been the dominant pro-athletic tracks, this school year a star athlete in another sport is emerging: swimmer Sean Green ‘25. 

A junior at Molloy, Sean has been swimming since he was about nine years old. “I started swimming because of my family,” shares Sean, with his grandpa, dad, sister, and aunt all sharing a love for the sport. Sean continued swimming at Molloy, joining the varsity swim team in just his freshman year, while simultaneously swimming for his club team, the Long Island Aquatic Club. 

Sean’s dedication to the sport both in and out of Molloy has earned him various awards, accolades, and titles. He currently holds the Molloy school record in the 200 free, and is rated number three in the country overall in his age group, but rated number one in the 400 Individual Medley (IM). Sean is the current 18 and under national champion in the 400 IM, and last year he was the 18 and under national champion in the 800 free. He holds the national age group record in the mile, and is currently a member of the National Junior team where he represents the USA when he swims. 

Most excitingly, Sean’s times in four different events have earned him a spot in the Olympic Team Trials in Indianapolis, Indiana in June 2024! “I’m excited about the trials,” says Sean, “because if I do well enough, I’ll get to go to Junior Worlds in Australia!” Sean qualified in the 400 IM, the 1500 freestyle, the 800 freestyle, and the 400 freestyle, and has a chance of making it to the 2024 Summer Olympics. “I’m thankful to all of my coaches. I have a great relationship with all of them, we communicate really well, and I think that’s helped me,” shares Sean.

Just this past weekend, Sean competed at A Champs, winning the 200 free and breaking his own school record by three seconds! He also broke the 500 record in the city, state, and federation, all of which were records set a decade ago, as well as the 23 year old school record by a whole seven seconds! At the end of the meet, Sean was awarded the Vinny Harkins MVP Award, making this a spectacular personal best!

Ms. Heather Green-Wresch, Executive Director of Enrollment Management, head coach of Molloy’s boys and girls swim teams, and Sean’s aunt, is extremely proud of his accomplishments. “I am so proud to watch Sean swim,” says Ms. Green-Wresch. “He has such wonderful school spirit and is always helping and cheering his teammates on. I cannot wait to see what great things he will accomplish in the future!” Although still a junior, Sean has already committed to swimming at the University of Georgia in 2025, and was awarded a full-tuition scholarship. Congratulations, Sean! The Molloy community looks forward to cheering you on in June!
