“Alison is very athletic,” Kremer and Nieszner said. “She is relatively new to the sport of swimming, but she has the athletic ability to adapt and make changes quickly in the water. We are very excited about the person and student that Alison is, and we are equally excited about the swimmer that Alison is developing into. We look forward to helping her continue this development with the Golden Gophers, and we are proud to have another Minnesota student athlete wanting to stay at close to home and represent her State’s flagship school.”
