Victoria Ambrose of Andover, Massachusetts has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Delaware for the 2019-20 season and beyond.
“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim for the University of Delaware. Once I met the team and the coaches, I knew that Delaware was the place I wanted to further my academic and swimming career. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a fighting blue hen, and I am looking forward to swimming for Coach Pablo Marmolejo and Coach Michael Walker. Go Blue Hens!!!”
