Emmie joined the Mules and made an immediate impact in the fly events. In her first NESCAC championship meet, she posted all life-time bests and set the tone for the rest of her career.


Emmie spent the first half of the season abroad but returned for the second half of competition. She had a great build and again saw her times steadily drop, posting personal bests in the 100 and 200 fly.


In her final year at Colby, she made her first finals at NESCAC championships in the 50 fly and jumped a spot in the evening final. Along with Captain Sarah Kletzer, she wowed the deck with some interesting dance moves.


Emmie felt it was very important the swimming world know she enjoys long walks on the beach, horseback riding, and interesting chats over a campfire. She has younger brother who is a breaststroker at Vassar College.
