The Kenyon Ladies will have some royalty joining their ranks next season.

When describing why she chose Kenyon, Ferguson-Nguyen said, “The atmosphere not only within the team but the school was incredible. Everyone was so welcoming and they made me feel at home. […] Also, the campus is beautiful and their swim program and academics are amazing.”
Ferguson-Nguyen said that it is her intent to pursue pre-med while at Kenyon. Her hobby of taking pictures will find also ample ground in the Gothic magnificence of the campus.
Ferguson-Nguyen’s best times are a mix of LCM and SCY as follow:
- 24.54 – 50 SCY Free

The Ladies still hold a record number of consecutive first place finishes (17) at the NCAA meet on the women’s side and will be looking to reclaim the title in the coming year.
