Berwyn, Pennsylvania’s Emily Cornell has made a verbal commitment to swim at the University of South Carolina for the 2016-2017 season. Cornell said “I am so excited to be joining this program! After meeting the coaches and bonding with the team, I knew this was the place for me.”
Cornell, a senior at Villa Maria Academy and club swimmer at Suburban Seahawks, has represented Villa at Pennsylvania high school state meet for 3 consecutive years.
