Leigh Lopez-Silvers from University Place, Washington has made a verbal commitment to Marshall University for the 2021-22 school year.
“I love the coaches and the campus is exactly what I was looking for. Every interaction I’ve had with the swimmers and coaches has been nothing but good.Go Herd! 💚”

Lopez-Silvers swims year-round with University Place Aquatic Club. Nearly all her best times come from 2019. At the Pacific Northwest Senior Short Course Championships last December, she finaled in the 100 free (9th), 200 free (9th), 50 fly (4th), 100 fly (10th), and 200 fly (6th) and took home PBs in the 200 free and 100 fly. In August she competed at Mt. Hood Futures in the 50/100/200 free and 100/200 fly. In March, she swam at Federal Way Sectionals and scored PBs in the 200 fly and 200 IM.
