“I’m excited to announce my commitment to Lehigh University. I’m very looking forward to swimming completely and also getting good education here. I believe I will enjoy my next four years in the Lehigh community.”

Qin focuses on breast, IM and sprint free. At the 2017 CIF-Southern Section Championships in May, Qin placed 8th in the 100 breast (1:04.81) before going on to compete at the California State Meet in the event, where she finished 33rd. In club swimming, most of her best times date from the fall of her junior year. She did not compete in long course meets this summer but swam at both Age Group Championships and CA/NV Sectionals in December.

Horne swims year-round for Wyckoff YMCA, where she specializes in free, fly, and IM. She notched a slew of PBs in December at the New Jersey Swimming Holiday Classic, and updated her LCM times in the 50 free, 50 fly, 100 fly, and 200 fly at 2017 YMCA Long Course Nationals this summer.
