USC Trojans Nab Verbal from Canadian Back/Breast/IMer Aëla Janvier

Aëla Janvier from Pointe-Claire, Canada has verbally committed to the University of Southern California’s class of 2023. She will join Nicole Pavlopoulou next fall.

“I’m extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Southern California 💛❤️ Thank you so much to my family, my coaches and all my teammates for pushing me everyday [sic] and making this possible! I can’t wait to be a Trojan ✌️ FIGHT ON!!!”

Janvier swims for Pointe-Claire Swim Club. At Canadian Swimming Trials in Edmonton this summer, she medaled in the 200m back (3rd with 2:11.82) and placed 6th in the 100m back (1:02.18) and 9th in the 200m IM (2:17.75).
