I chose The University of Virginia because it offered the best combination of prestigious academics and prominent athletics. I love the energy that the new coaching staff brought to the team this year, and I could tell the team was excited and fully invested in the new coaching staff and training style. UVA has a beautiful campus and sets up anyone who attends to be successful in and out of the pool. I am extremely excited to be a part of this team as there is enormous potential for success. This year marks a big and exciting change for the University of Virginia, and I am excited to be a part of their growing success and their plan to be a top swimming program in the country. I can not wait to be a part of this new chapter in UVA history! GO CAVALIERS class of '22.
