PENSACOLA, Florida, January 24. FIRST, the University of West Florida put a mic on Argonaut head coach Andrew Hancock. Now, the UWF Athletics program provides a great inside look at the West Florida swimming and diving program with its “Campus Correspondent” series.

The series features different athletes talking about their particular sports program, and this week freshman swimmer Mikaela Aponte takes viewers through a quick two-minute jaunt through everything Argonaut.

Aponte is a pre-med student from Pompano Beach who represented Fort Lauderdale High School as a prep star. She represented Bolivia at the 2012 FINA World Open Water Championships, and also qualified for the 2013 edition in Spain.

The video includes the always fun GoPro underwater footage with Aponte taking swimmers through a bit of practice from her point of view.
