GCY's Alaina Joyce gives Verbal Commitment to the University of Indianapolis!
Southern Alamance High School Senior Alaina Joyce, who trains and competes year-round for the GCY Makos, has given her verbal commitment to the University Of Indianapolis, Class of 2022! Alaina is a breastroke specialist, with YMCA National and USA Futures time standards. She is a multiple NCHSAA State Championship finalist, and competed at the 2016 Winter Junior National Championships at Ohio State University as a member of the GCY 400 medley relay team. She has held several GCY team records, currently she holds the 200 breaststroke team record (2:21.62), and appears multiple times in various strokes on GCY's All-Time Top 10 Lists! Alaina is also one of the most dynamic team leaders in our club's history...she has helped build the GCY Annual Slideshow for the past 3 years, always leads efforts to clean up equipment after practice, make cards for her teammates when they out, and the first to step up during many of our community service efforts...we could go on and on, she truly exemplifies the core values of the YMCA!
At UIndy, her current best times puts her top 3 in breaststroke team history, and she is very close to NCAA B Championship time standards; she should have an immediate positive impact on that program as well!
"I am SUPER EXCITED to announce my verbal commitment to swim at University of Indianapolis! Go Hounds!"
