The 2013-2014 season at Rose-Hulman ended better than I ever could have imagined. After breaking more than 20 records in the 2012-2013 season, I never would have imagined breaking another 13. We sent two to the NCAA Division III National Championships.

Both swam well and earned All-American status by finishing in the top 8.

Personal Challenges

This season was easier than last year.

From my point of view, I had a very successful season. I worked to understand the ideology behind the training structure, I trained starts and turns exclusively toward the end of the season and even had a stroke of genius, helping a freshman finish in the top 8 in a new event after observing his awesome back start.

Aside from that, I found a new coach to mentor. I’m extremely flattered that he sees me as his mentor, and I hope he continues to work in the swimming community.
