Burlingame Aquatic Club’s Emma Lepisova has verbally committed to the Northwestern Wildcats for 2019. She is the reigning Futures Santa Clara champion in the 200m backstroke.
I would first like to thank all the people who have helped me through this whole recruiting process: my coach, my family, my friends, and all the coaches I have had the pleasure of speaking to throughout my recruiting journey. I chose Northwestern because of the perfect balance between swimming and academics. I will be able to pursue my swimming career while studying at one of the best universities in the world. The team and coaches were welcoming and kind, and I am extremely excited to be on this amazing team! Go Cats!
