Chadé Nersicio, who is going into her senior year at Trinity Christian Academy in Lake Worth, Florida, has announced her verbal commitment to Florida State University’s class of 2023. She will begin her collegiate career in the fall of 2019 with England’s Lizzie Harris, also verbally committed to the Seminoles for 2019-20.
“I’ve spent the past 3 years in Florida growing as a person and swimmer at ECAC. I’m excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academics and to continue to grow as a swimmer at Florida State University. I would like to thank my coach, my mum, host family and everyone else who’s always supported and been there for me. GO NOLES!!!”
