In the first meet of her senior year, Katie Ledecky wore a cap belonging to a swimmer from another school who was seriously injured in a car crash.
Ledecky, the Olympic 800m freestyle champion and multiple world record holder, swam for Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart while wearing a Gonzaga College High School swim cap in a meet involving both schools.
Ledecky’s cap had the name “Johannessen” on it. It belongs to Patrick “PJ” Johannessen, a Gonzaga senior swimmer who was seriously injured in a two-car crash that killed one student on Nov. 1.
