BEING A STUDENT-ATHLETE AT UVA MEANS TAKING ON THE CHALLENGE OF PURSUING EXCELLENCE IN BOTH ACADEMICS AND ATHLETICS RATHER THAN SACRIFICING ONE IN PURSUIT OF THE OTHER. BEING A PART OF UVA’S SWIM & DIVE PROGRAM MEANS TAKING ON THIS CHALLENGE NOT FOR OUR OWN RECOGNITION, BUT FOR THE TEAMMATES WE GET TO DO IT WITH. I’M HONORED TO BE ABLE TO SAY I’M A UVA STUDENT-ATHLETE AND MEMBER OF THE UVA SWIM & DIVE TEAM, AND I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE DONORS WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE.”
