Senior Jory Richardson has been swimming for as long as she can remember. Now, those 5 a.m. practices and extreme dedication to the sport have landed her a position on the University of Miami Swim and Dive team. Richardson committed last spring and is looking forward to spending the next four years in Miami.

“I cannot wait to go to college,” Richardson said. “I’ve been talking to my future teammates over Facetime and we’re planning on all going on a date together soon.”

While she has a lot to look forward to, one particular aspect of Miami that Richardson is looking forward to is the warm weather.

“I don’t like the cold and being in Miami it’s almost always sunny and I’ll get to be by the beach all the time,” Richardson said.
