Why Arizona? I came to Arizona because of the team and coaches. After meeting everyone then watching the Wildcats compete against Wisconsin, I realized that I wanted to be a part of a team that enjoys all aspects of swimming. Everyone was so excited to race and they supported each other so positively I just knew there was something special going on here and I just had to be part of it.

What stood out to you about the University of Arizona? Two things stood out to me about the University of Arizona. The campus is fabulous - it has such a great look and "feel" to it. And Tucson is a beautiful city nestled in the desert and surrounded by mountains.
