UCSB Signs Eight Top High School Swimmers

SANTA BARBARA, December 3. THE UC Santa Barbara swimming team has signed eight outstanding swimmers to National Letters of Intent, head coach Gregg Wilson announced this week.

"This is, by far, the best group of early signees we have ever had, said Wilson. "They all reflect the qualities we look for: strong academic credentials, the ability to work well within a team environment, and a desire to excel in the pool every day. We believe all these student athletes will be impact swimmers in our program"

The Gaucho women's roster will be strengthened with the additions of Kelly Brody, Lilly Johnson, Katie Moeckel, Jennifer Schwalb and Kendall Short in the 2003-2004 season. For the men, the Gauchos signed three freestyle-oriented swimmers: Jason Hardy, Brent Nolan, and Miles Peck.

Schwalb, Hardy, Nolan and Peck have all been named High School All-Americans.
