“I am so excited to have signed with the University of the Cumberlands. There are many reasons why I signed with the University of the Cumberlands such as the incredible coaching staff and the warm family feeling of the swimmers.When I went on a visit I meet with a professor and he was very nice and welcoming. Overall the deciding factors were the Coaching staff and the swimmers.  When I went there I was immediately accepted like I was a part of the team. I am so excited to go swim for Coach Skelly and Coach Spanjers at the University of the Cumberlands. “
