GREENSBORO- Dan Colella has a strong freshman duo representing Duke at this weekend’s NCAAs. Leah Goldman and Isabella Paiez were the two sporting Duke caps and gaining invaluable big meet experience. Both ladies saw their biggest drops at ACCs, but Colella is excited about their futures in the sport.

Duke recently became a fully-funded program which Colella sees as a game changer for the team. Coach Colella took time to chat with Swimming World about the direction of the team, the performance of his two swimmers, and how NCAA differs from any other meet.
