I am so excited to join the Truman State Women's Swimming Program! Truman is the perfect fit for me academically, as I pursue a career in veterinary science, and athletically as I reach for my goals in the butterfly and sprint free events. During my recruitment visit, the coaching staff and the entire team was so welcoming and enthusiastic about me attending Truman and competing on the team. Their sincerity meant the world to me. The coaching staff is really engaged and supportive, and I look forward to training, competing and contributing to the team under their guidance. On the academic side, I really like the idea of the small class sizes, and the opportunity to really get to know my professors. Truman is affordable, and close enough to my Nebraska home town that my parents can travel to cheer on the Bulldogs which means a lot to me and them. And, finally, I am excited to carry on the family tradition. My two older brothers chose to attend and swim for Truman. One of my brothers will be a senior at Truman when I am a freshman. I think it will super fun to experience college swimming with him. Go Bulldogs!
