KINGMAN - After a combined 24 years of swimming with the Kingman Dolphins Swim Team, Heather Weninger and Pat Webb were rewarded for their time and energy spent with the club to the tune of $400 each in the form of college scholarships.

Weninger plans on using the scholarship to assist with her costs at the University of Arizona. She said she's considering pre-med with her eye on dentistry, but that decision hasn't been cemented. Webb will be attending Florida Southern College with a double major in philosophy and political science. From there, he hopes to attend law school.

"I like their dedication," said KDST coach Teri Rose. "They always strive to improve as scholar athletes."

Weninger and Webb are both 2014 Kingman High graduates, and Weninger has been swimming with the Dolphins since she was 7 years old. Besides having a good time, she's gained a lot of know-how from her 11 years with the club.

"It was always fun," Weninger said. "The older kids were always great leaders for me when I was young. They set excellent examples for me and when I got older I was happy to follow them."

Weninger has begun to pay it forward with the Dolphins, assisting Rose with the club this summer before heading to Tucson for school.

Webb spent 13 years with the team after joining when he was 5. In the years that followed, the Dolphins gave him opportunities he didn't expect would be available to him.

"When the Dolphins went year round, that made me more competitive," he said. "They took me to things like state championships, the Far Western Regionals, and I made Team Arizona."

It was in 2010 when Webb represented Arizona at the inaugural Four Corners Regional in Farmington, N.M. Webb expects to help Rose out again next year with the Dolphins when he takes his summer break from FSC, where he's going to try and land spots on the cross country and track teams.

As the scholarships provide assistance to Weninger and Webb, Rose expects the result to include two quality leaders in their respective communities as they age.

"They have the ability and willingness to motivate others as seen with the way they help younger swimmers," Rose said. "It's an attribute that will take them down the road to becoming successful adults."
