Hi! I am Samantha Allred. I have wanted to swim at the collegiate level for as long as I can remember. I want to be part of team that is very close, like a family. As far as college swimming goes, one of my goals is to place in the Conference Championship meet and qualify to swim in the NCAA Championship meet. I have been swimming year-round since I was six years old and I absolutely love it. I am an extremely hard worker in every aspect. For my entire swimming career, I have been swimming with the best athletes in my age group. They inspire me to keep pushing and to work harder. I am very goal oriented and extremely motivated. I have lofty goals and I don’t always achieve them (at the exact moment I want to), but I keep my head up and I push harder. When I do reach my goals, I set new ones quickly. I am always supportive of my teammates; we are one big family. However, I am very proud of the fact that I am my own person, I do not get caught up in drama or give into peer pressure. I give 100%, always; in meets, and daily, in practice. I am competitive both in the water and out of the water. Academically, I have always done well, and will continue to push myself to maintain a higher standard of learning. I am so looking forward to being an integral part of the right team!!
