Katie Brown excitedly began her collegiate career at UNC Asheville at the start of the 2015/2016 season. Although she battled injuries early on in the season, Brown rallied to have a standout Conference meet.
Brown trained with the sprint group, focusing on freestyle, butterfly and backstroke events. Brown made herself well known on the team for her high energy and competitive race mentality. Both of which propelled her to success as a freshman on the Bulldog squad.
At the 2016 Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association Conference Championships, Brown raced to multiple personal best times. Her 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly were all personal best times.
Brown looks forward to her sophomore season to develop the skills she learned as a freshman.
