Firestone freshmen Jonny Marshall and Tera Brilmyer are good friends who will compete in the Division I swimming state championship meet this weekend in Canton.

The 15-year-olds are also next-door neighbors in the Fairlawn Heights neighborhood in Northwest Akron.

“They are like brother and sister,” Firestone swimming coach Cindy Dial said. “It is pretty amusing to watch. There are no filters, so it is like brother and sister arguing, playing or fighting. It is fun.

″... They feed off each other. They love to work hard and they are fun.”

Brilmyer and Marshall enjoy conversations and laughs, but they are also focused on the upcoming state meet at C.T. Branin Natatorium. The Division I state preliminary races start at 9 a.m. on Friday, and the Division I state final races are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Read more here >>.
