Eliza Baker-Wacks

Eliza comes to Mayflower Hill by way of California. In her high school career, she was a member of a league record 200 medley relay and qualified for CIF Southern Section Championships in the 100 Breast. She is one the Aquamules’ key breaststrokers.

Colby College Swimming and Diving


Eliza had a standout freshman season that saw her join the ranks of Colby’s Top-20 All-Time records in the 50 Breast. It also marked the first time she had ever competed in the 200 breast. Her efforts were so successful, she swam the event as one of her three individual races at NESCAC Championships.


In her sophomore year, Eliza continued to work on the breaststroke races. She had a great dual meet season and regularly was featured on relays. At NESCAC championships, she was an important member of the 200 and 400 medley relays.


Eliza loves the great outdoors and once backpacked for 31 days in the wilderness of Wyoming. She hates all things orange and that bias extends to the fruit, Garfield, and caution signs.
