The Clippers are extremely proud to announce that Caitlyn Forman has made her verbal commitment to attend and swim for Auburn University next fall. Caitlyn quickly narrowed her choices down to the two schools she visited earlier this month (Auburn and USC). “I had the chance to visit some schools this summer on unofficial visits so I got a good feel for my other schools I was interested in” Forman explained.
Forman is coming off a difficult summer experiencing some issues with numerous allergies and illness. After changing her diet because of the food allergies and being sick it was very tough on her training and confidence. Caitlyn with guidance from her coaches opted to bypass Nationals this summer and begin preparing for SCY Nationals in December and Junior Nationals in March.
Caitlyn is excited about her decision to attend Auburn. “It just felt right and I feel like the coaches are very excited about me at Auburn, they understand that being out this summer will not hurt me in the long run”. Caitlyn is relieved to have this big decision behind her and looking forward to working on her swimming. Congratulations Caitlyn on your accomplishment. Caitlyn is the first of many this year to commit to colleges. Stay tune for more.
