Why did you choose Missouri?

I heard about the amazing facility, saw some pictures and heard a lot of stories about the "Mizzou family," and decided this was a place where I could get better.

How has the program at Mizzou made you a better swimmer?

I think that because the team stands behind you in everything you do, it makes you stronger. I also think the coaching staff has played a very big part in me getting better.

What is your best memory with the team?

Every race I won for Mizzou was a great memory and one I will never forget.
