Courtesy: William & Mary Athletics

The William & Mary women’s swimming team will add nine freshmen to the roster ahead of the 2019-20 season, interim head coach Chris Carter announced today. The class includes five athletes from Virginia, as well as standouts from Connecticut, California, Ohio, and New York. Each of the nine women would have qualified for at least two finals at last year’s Colonial Athletic Association Championships, combining for a total of 28 finals spots including 12 championship finals.

“We are very excited to introduce these nine individuals to our Tribe,” Carter said. “It was going to take some special people to make up for our graduating class, but we believe we have found a group that is up to the challenge. These young women will make an immediate impact on our team, and will help our program continue to contend for CAA titles. Our goal is to find exceptional people who are great students and great swimmers, and this class certainly checks all three boxes!”
