“I am so excited to announce my commitment to swim at Swarthmore College next fall! I chose Swarthmore to continue my studies as it provided the best combination of world class academics with a competitive athletic environment. I cannot be more thankful for the opportunity that Coach Karin and Coach Sam have provided for me. Go Garnet!!”
