FORT MYERS, Fla. – Coming off his second year as the head coach and the program’s ninth CCSA Championship in a span of a decade, the two-time reigning CCSA Coach of the Year Dave Rollins and the FGCU swimming and diving program have announced the addition of 10 student-athletes for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

Dawning the Green and Blue for the first time will be swimmers, Wiktoria Czarnecka, Kellie Fischer, Joslyn Filo, Delaine Goll, Emily Glinecke, Ashley Kaminski, Meghan Schienvar, Madison Shimek, Taylor Williams and Brooke Woellert.

Glinecke is the only transfer addition to the class as she spent the last two seasons competing for Arizona State. The remaining nine newcomers will all be in their first years of eligibility with FGCU.

“This is a very exciting class to help us build our program,” said Rollins. “Not only are each one of these young ladies exceptionally gifted in the pool and in the classroom, they are all first class people who are committed to continuing our strong academic and athletic traditions.”
