Why did you decide to swim for Minnesota?

Growing up in Minnesota it has always been a dream and goal of mine to be apart of the U of M swim team and to represent my state at something I love doing. It is such an honor! I also love and respect the coaches and team. It is also a great school for both academics and athletics!

What are you looking forward to the most with starting your Golden Gopher collegiate career?

I am looking forward to meeting the whole team and developing great friendships with everyone! Also, I am looking forward to competing as a Gopher and becoming the best swimmer I can be.

Thus far, what has been your best or most proud swimming memory?

Either swimming at the Olympic Trials or winning Junior Nationals this winter for the first time ever!

What do you like to do for fun besides swimming?

Living on a lake, I love tubing and jet skiing and just hanging on the lake with friends. I also love to bake.

How do you think you will contribute to the Gopher swimming and diving program?

By willing to swim anything to help the team out and win. I also hope to bring a positive and supportive attitude to the team!
