wow UoA is really taking a hit this year…


Hopefully they don’t go down a similar path as the UVA men did


Based on the article it does not look like he swam there last year so this might not be related to the coaching change.


He swam for Arizona until December 2016

AZSwammer- Correct. The decision to transfer was made before the coaching staff change.

Due to SwimAtlanta’s multiple locations, Nick actually trains under Doug Gjertsen.


Before Nick went to UofA, he was with Coach Gjertsen (Swim Atlanta), but has been recently training with Coach Chris Davis at another Swim Atlanta Location


Wrong Nick trains with Chris Senior currently. When he was a club swimmer in high school he swam with Doug.


He is a nice boy
