"There were many different attributes that I was in search of when I was looking for a new assistant and Brittany meets all of them. There is much to be said about all of her accomplishments in and out of the pool. But, the drive, demeanor and personality that she brings to this program could never be overstated. She will be an intricate part of the forward progress of this program. It was only a matter of time before Brittany found her way back into college swimming and we feel that we are very luck to have her."

I feel lucky to get to work within a program that is proving itself to be a force in the Horizon League and I have been very impressed with the work ethic and the expectation of excellence that has been demonstrated from both the administration and the student-athletes. I can't wait to see what this season brings for the Panthers and I am excited I can be a part of it."
