The Clippers are extremely proud to announce that MacKenzie Margroum has made her verbal commitment to swim next year in college. "Kenzie" will join fellow teammate Hanna Gillcrist at the Naval Academy. This now makes 3 Clippers(Kenzie, Hanna Gillcrist and Sarah Truskot) in the past two years to attend the Naval Academy. They also join LSU and Louisville as schools that have had three Clippers at the same time swimming for them.
Kenzie was also recruited by many other division 1 schools
including the Auburn, University of Alabama and University of
Approximately 2,000 candidates are found fully qualified (scholastic, medical, CFA, and have obtained a nomination) each year. Of that number, about 1,500 will receive appointments and approximately 1,200 become midshipmen. Could you imagine if every college had these types of requirements!!!
Navy is a Division 1 program that competes in the Patriot League.
