Katie Discipio

Katie is in her sophomore year of swimming for the Aquamules. She is a Colby Presidential Scholar and is studying Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry. She is the program’s leading IMer and currently holds the team record in 400 IM with a time of 4:33.66.

Katie had a breakout first season for the Mules, taking top 5 All-Time program records in the 100 and 200 Fly as well as in the 200 and 400 IM. At her first NESCAC Championships, she made finals and finished top 8 in the 200 fly and 400 IM while taking 9th in the 50 fly.

Building on the success of her first season, Katie became the Aquamules’ leading dual meet scorer. At NESCAC championships, she built her resume, making a NCAA ‘B’ cut and breaking a school record in the 400 IM while also making finals and taking top 8 in all three (400 IM, 50 Fly, 200 Fly) of her individual events. She was also a member of three Colby Relays that made the podium and took top 8 honors at the meet.


Katie prides herself on the unique ability to pull off any outfit. She gained this momentous confidence as member of her high school band and club synchronized swimming team. Her favorite clothing items you may ask? It would have to be her collection of adult rompers.
