Glenn’s Top Times

  • 500/400 free – 4:54.82/4:23.97
  • 1000/800 free – 10:03.14/8:56.41
  • 1650/1500 free – 16:41.02/16:59.37

Swimming for Ocean City High School, Glenn placed 2nd in the 500 free and 4th in the 200 free at last year’s New Jersey HS Championships.

Glenn would’ve been Penn State’s 5th best 500 freestyler and their 4th best 1000 and 1650 freestyler last season. The Nittany Lions graduated top distance swimmer Megan Silverling last year, and Glenn will get a year of overlap with the likes of other strong distance swimmers Casey Francis and Katelyn Sowinski.

At last year’s B1G Championships, Glenn would’ve snuck into scoring range in the mile (placing 23rd), though it took a sub-4:50 to make it back in the 500 free. She could be an immediate conference level scorer for Penn State, which is exactly what they’re looking for after they finished 7th at B1G Champs last year.

In addition to Glenn, the Nittany Lions will welcome Long Island Aquatic Club’s Cara Treble, Parkland Aquatic Club’s Siena Salvaggio, and NCAP’s Annalee Johnson to the team next fall.
