“Ecstatic to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Pennsylvania for the class of 2023! Thank you to my wonderful parents, coaches, teachers, and friends for helping me achieve this dream. Will always be grateful to all the incredible people I met on my recruiting journey!”
