Mattea Sokolow, Sean Green Named Phillips 66 Hometown Heroes

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Mattea Sokolow and Sean Green are recognized as the Phillips 66 Hometown Heroes at the 2023 Phillips 66 National Championships in Indianapolis. A tenured partner of USA Swimming, the diversified energy company is proud to recognize up-and-coming swimming talent from across the country.
Sokolow, who swims for TSM Aquatics, will be a freshman at Michigan in the fall and will join the varsity swimming team. In Indianapolis, she swam both the 800m freestyle and 1500m freestyle.

“Going a best time at a meet like this is always exciting,” Mattea said. “It’s really cool (to swim at a meet with Olympians). I look up to a lot of them, some of them I’m friends with, but it’s really cool and fun to watch them win races here.”

Green, a soon-to-be high school junior, swims for Long Island Aquatic Club. He competed in four individual events in Indianapolis, including his favorite – the 800m freestyle (400m freestyle, 400m individual medley and 1500m freestyle).

“I’m super excited to be at this meet and race all the awesome athletes,” Green said.
The Hometown Heroes program annually recognizes the achievements of one male and one female swimmer from both the Phillips 66 National Championships and Toyota U.S. Open swim meets. Sokolow and Green have now joined a growing list of athletes which includes Bella Brito, Zach Larrick, Richard Poplawski and Sarah Rodrigues, all of whom have gone on to achieve collegiate and national success.
