Hank Williams Jr. had a smash hit song back in 1979 about a certain kind of “Family Tradition.”
While the country music singer related to the wild life, Winder-Barrow High School’s Alex Hentenaar knows about a different kind of “family tradition.” For Hentenaar, the tradition centers around a swimming pool and being one of the top athletes for the WBHS Swim Doggs.
“Alex is an amazing young man,” said WBHS coach Jennifer Blevins. “He comes from a large family including older sister Caitlin; older brother Billy and then younger brother, Ian. Caitlin and Billy are both students at the University of Georgia with Billy being a member of the Red Coat band. Both Caitlin and Billy swam for me when they were at Winder-Barrow and Ian will be with us next year. Needless to say, I will have 13 years of coaching all of the Hentenaar children. They are a great group of kids and I would not trade them for anything.”
