I chose Diablo Valley College because I wanted to swim an extra year and have that extra year to improve my times and transfer into a 4 year university after 1 yer at Diablo Valley College. I also chose to come to Diablo Valley College to learn how to be successful on my own and how to live life on my own. It will be a good experience and give me time to work hard for the next year, and improve my times even more.
I knew a former WVU swimmer who had a great experience here. The relationship I developed with Coach Riggs was very important to me and my parents. Coach Riggs understood the importance of me wanting to compete at the 2016 French trials
I chose Colgate because I wanted to swim Division 1, but also attended a liberal arts school with a high level of academic rigor. Colgate has great facilities and programs both within athletics and academics and this intrigued me and convinced me that Colgate was the place for me.
