NEW COMMIT: St. Louis, Mo. native Bella Snyder has announced her verbal pledge to the University of Massachusetts – Amherst for the fall of 2019.

Snyder swims year-round for CSP Tideriders under head coach Dave McCrary. She capped off her summer season at NCSAs after recording a personal best at Jenks Speedo Sectionals. She won the 1000 free at Ozark Seniors and posted a trio of top-20 finishes at Columbia Speedo Sectionals in March.

She told Swimming World:

“I am very excited to announce that I have verbally committed to the University of Massachusetts Amherst where I will be continuing my academic and athletic careers! I loved UMass because of the amazing coaches and wonderful team environment!”

Her best times include:

  • 200 free – 1:53.74
  • 500 free – 5:00.66
  • 1000 free – 10:13.03
  • 1650 free – 17:14.26

Although she sits just outside scoring range in the 200 and 500 free, Snyder would’ve placed 12th in the mile at the 2018 A-10 Championships and will join a distance group led by Kelly Malyszka and Olga Egkorova. The Minutewomen finished sixth at last season’s conference meet.

If you have a commitment to share, please send a photo and quote via email to hs@swimmingworld.com.
