How did it feel finishing third in state in the butterfly?

Ultimately I was trying to improve upon my time from last year and I was able to do that, so I’m very satisfied with how everything turn out.

Being on varsity for four years, how did you feel about your finish?

I’ve been able to stick with some of the same guys and coaches the past four years and getting further along with my swimming career and dropping time has been great. We ended the season with great swims on the 400 free relay with Kevin Kluge, John Tjards, and Bebe Wang getting a team record by over a second and a half, and placing 15th in the state. It was a great final note to leave off of.

What is your favorite swimming career memory?

Winning state in the 200 medley relay last year was such an incredible experience. We worked so hard and everything had to come together perfectly for that relay, but we pulled through and won.

Why did you decide to continue swimming in college?

Swimming has become such a huge part of my life. It’s given me some of my best friends and it’s opened so many doors to new opportunities. It creates a really tight, close group of friends that will be hard to be without next year.

What are you looking forward to with swimming at Ohio State?

Ohio State seems like a perfect fit for me. I love the campus, the coaches, and the guys I met on the team. They have an amazing swim team that’s a great opportunity to be on and I can’t wait to see where they take me.
