Marissa (“Mo”) Wolff of McFarland, Wisconsin has made a verbal commitment to swim for Kenyon College beginning in the fall of 2017.
“I chose Kenyon for their excellent balance of academics and athletics. I’ve been in love with the school and team for over a year, and I couldn’t imagine seeing myself anywhere but Kenyon. The class sizes and professors were absolutely phenomenal when I visited which was a huge factor into why I chose the school. I’d like to thank my various coaches over the years including Nick and Neil Weiss, Derrick O’Donnell, Wes Lagerhausen, and Luke Spring along with the McFarland Spartan Sharks for helping me get to this point in my swimming career. I’m enthused to continue my swimming career as a division three athlete. Go Kenyon Ladies and Lords!”
Wolff is a senior at McFarland High School where she has been a WIAA Division 2 finalist in both the 200 and 500 freestyles in each of her three years. She swims year-round for McFarland Spartan Sharks, and has qualified for Wisconsin state short-course and long-course meets every season since 2008. In addition she has been a Zones qualifier since 2011, and a Sectionals qualifier since 2013.
Her best events are:
- 1650 free – 17:49.15
- 1000 free – 10:26.03
- 500 free – 5:09.19
- 200 free – 1:53.68
- 100 free – 53.31
She will join Julia Moran and Myanna Cook, who have also given verbal commitments to Kenyon College’s class of 2021.
