Five of her current times would have placed her in the B final at the 2016 America East Swim & Dive Championships.

400 IM – 4:37.11

“I chose the University of Vermont because of the exceptional academics and the dedicated coaching staff. During my visit, I immediately felt like I was part of the team. I can’t wait to continue growing as a swimmer, student, and person at such a magnificent school!”
