Fighting Irish Pull in Verbal Commitment from Sarah Boyle

Centreville, Virginia’s Sarah Boyle has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Notre Dame for 2019-20. As such she will join a class of 2023 that also includes, so far, Coleen Gillilan, Elizabeth Fry, and Sydney Winters.

“I am thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to swim for the University of Notre Dame! I am honored to have the opportunity to continue my education at an elite university that is rich in tradition and offers the perfect combination of outstanding academics and athletics.  Thank you to my family and friends for all your encouragement and support and to my amazing coaches and teammates for helping me achieve my goals. I can’t wait to be a part of the Notre Dame family! GO IRISH!”
