Swimming has been my primary sport since age seven. I changed my club team last year due to my desire to swim in a more competitive environment. As a result, technique has become a major focus every day during training. While I remain a versatile swimmer, I have developed freestyle and backstroke as my goal events. Because of my travel distance to club practice, I have not participated in a consistent weight program or morning practices. I am confident in my abilities to improve and excel in this sport. My goals during my collegiate experience are to contribute to the team's success while achieving individual goals. I take pride in my work ethic at every practice and value the team atmosphere. I embrace the role of a student athlete and look forward to advancing my studies in liberal arts/ psychology fields.
