Adel Juhasz from Kiskunhalas, Hungary has announced she will attend Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in the fall. She is joining a group of verbal commits to the Virginia Tech class of 2022 that also includes Abby Larson, Alex Slayton, Anna Landon, Jennifer Hauser, Julia Bruneau, Lauren Meeker, Loulou Vos, Natalia Fryckowska, and Rachael Holp.
“I would like to confirm my commitment to Virginia Tech. I will enjoy beginning next September in 2018. I chose this school, because the coaches supported me and there are two other Hungarian national team members swimming there. I have heard a lot of great things from them and I am very excited to join the team. I can’t wait to be a real Hokie!”
