Jack Gray from Trumbull, Connecticut has announced his intention to swim for the University of Connecticut beginning in the fall of 2018. Gray is a senior at Trumbull High School and he swims at Westport/Weston Family Y Swim Team.
“The moment I stepped on Campus, I knew that it was the place I wanted to spend the next four years. The team as a whole was very supportive of each other in and out of the pool which is exactly what I wanted. The academic supports that UConn offers is over the top, which will help me succeed as a student! Additionally, the direction that the program is heading towards under the guidance of Coach Chris, Coach Tim, and Coach Christa made me have an even bigger desire to commit to UConn. I am very excited to attend UConn to be apart of such an amazing up and coming program! Go Huskies!” [sic]
