“I’m beyond happy and humbled to have verbally committed to study and swim at Emory University! I can’t wait to receive a world-class education as well as swim with such an incredible team. Thank you so much to my coaches, teammates, friends, and wonderful family for all your support throughout this process! Go Eagles!!”

A state finalist in each of her three high school seasons so far, Chinn is a NISCA All-American.
