“I chose West Virginia because I felt a personal connection with the university and the team. It seemed like a perfect fit from the beginning. During the whole process the coaches were helpful with all my questions. During my visit the team was welcoming and made me feel at home. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of West Virginia swimming and the community and I look forward to growing as a swimmer, while obtaining a quality education. Thanks to all who have supported me. I couldn’t have done it without you. Go Mountaineers!!!!”
