Why did you choose Missouri?
I chose Mizzou for the facilities, such as the pool, dining hall and academic support center. I also chose it for the immediate friendships I made while on my recruiting trip, which have turned into long lasting bonds.
How has the program at Mizzou made you a better swimmer?
The program has allowed me to narrow down my specialties and repeatedly practice stroke changes. In addition, college training has given me a platform to build a better aerobic base than I ever achieved in high school.
What is your best memory with the team?
Being a part of the scoring team at conference my freshman year and beating Texas A&M for the first time in school history.
