Why did you choose Cal?
I chose Cal because of its rich history of athletic and academic success. I knew that Cal was the place where I could reach my full potential both in the pool and in the classroom.

What is your favorite memory at Cal so far?
My favorite memory of Cal so far was competing and scoring at Pac-10s when I was a freshman, being a part of that environment and helping to contribute to a fantastic team effort as well as cheering on our NCAA squad as they surprised the entire college swimming community after being underestimated going into the meet.

What are your swimming goals from this year and for the rest of your college swimming career?
My individual swimming goals for this upcoming season and the rest of my swimming career at Cal is to score even more points at Pac-10s, make the NCAA squad and score at NCAAs, and my goals for the team are to win Pac-10s and NCAAs.
