New Lebanon High and Pittsfield YMCA swimmer Alex Sotek ready for Nationals

Alex Sotek, a swimmer from the Berkshire Family YMCA in Pittsfield, has qualified for the Nationals in North Carolina in April, where she will compete in the freestyle and the butterfly.

It’s a big moment at the YMCA in Pittsfield. Or rather, for one of the Y’s swimmers. It’s been a decade since the Y or swim coach Cathy Cybulski has had a youth swimmer advance to the YMCA National Swim Meet.

But that decade-long dry spell will end once Alex Sotek hits the water on Tuesday.
