Elisa had a good dual meet run, contributing in the sprint events and on relays.


Elisa focused her attention on the IM events as a sophomore. She was a scorer in both the 200 and 400 IM during the year. She built on that momentum and swam three personal bests in the 200 IM, 400 IM, and 200 back at NESCAC Championships.


Elisa grew up and lived in Tokyo for 11 years. Coming to Colby from California, she is one of the team’s three Californians.
