Cat Padgett

Cat is in her sophomore season at Colby. She is studying at Environmental and Education and plans to use her education to be an urban farmer when she grows up. She is one of the Aquamules’ top backstrokers.

Cat had an excellent rookie year. She came in as an immediate dual meet scorer and was a key member of the Mules’ relays. At NESCAC Championships, she earned  program top-20 records in the 50 and 200 back.


In her sophomore season, Cat built on her previous success and helped the program to a strong dual meet run. At NESCAC Championships, she was a key member of the relays and performed well in her individual events.


Cat’s favorite superhero is the comic book character Spider-Man. She is especially proud of her shoe charms bearing his resemblance and she often wears them around campus. Cat is probably the most cheerful person on the greater east coast, regularly lighting up any room she enters.
