Two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American Cathy Teng has verbally committed to the application process at Princeton University.*
“I chose Princeton because of its excellent academics and swimming program! I felt right at home with the team on my recruiting trip and absolutely fell in love with the campus and student activities while I was there. I am so thankful to be able to continue my swimming career and to study at one of the best universities in the world! Go Tigers!”
Teng hails from Santa Clara, California, where she is a member of the Santa Clara Swim Club‘s High Performance group and a senior at Archbishop Mitty High School. Teng is an AP Scholar with Distinction as well as a National Merit Commended Scholar. She won the 100 free and 200 free at the 2017 CIF-Central Coast Section Championships, going PBs of 49.43 and 1:46.31, respectively. She also anchored the Mitty 200 free and 400 free relays with 22.83 and 49.22. In club swimming, Teng competed at 2017 U.S. World Championship Trials in the 50/100/200 free, and was invited to USA Swimming’s National Select Camp.
