The Mile (and a Third) High Life: Adams State University Hype Video

NCAA Division II Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado is situated at 7,544 feet above sea level, but Dan France’s team doesn’t see that as a hindrance to their success in the pool. Rather, they see it as an advantage, and have ridden that altitude to success in the pool, especially for their women’s team who have an undefeated dual record for their women’s team dating back to 2012 and scored at the NCAA Division II Championships for the first time in program history in 2015.

Above, check out the recruiting/hype video directed and produced by Alan Jackman, the lone senior-to-be on the Grizzlies’ men’s 2015-2016 roster.
