I chose Santa Cruz because of the wonderful community the team has! The swimmers and coaches had an excellent relationship that encouraged an extremely encouraging and welcoming atmosphere. On top of this, the school has an amazing campus and a high quality education system, all while being minutes away from stunning beaches and a rich and vibrant community. I cannot be more excited to spend my next four years here competing with this team. Big thanks to all my teammates and coaches on Spare Time Aquatics swimming, and my parents for helping get me to the day I can finally say; I'm a Banana Slug!
