We are pleased to announce that Avery Ericksen will be attending the University of Notre Dame in the fall of 2020. This is a little different announcement because Avery will not be swimming at Notre Dame. She will be a member of the Rowing Team.
Avery is very new to the sport of
rowing but has found instant success this summer which led to her
being recruited by some of the best programs in the country
(Stanford, Texas, Ohio State and of course Notre Dame).
"I am so excited to be committed to row at Notre Dame next year. I knew as soon as I met the team that it was the right place for me. I am so thankful for my Torpedo family and their support throughout this process. Go Irish!"
We are extremely proud of Avery and all her accomplishments in rowing and in swimming. Avery has been a huge part of our senior program over the last couple years. Her training group will be the first to tell you that her constant positive attitude and fun spirit can make some of the hardest days in the water so much better.
Avery is not only a successful rower, but she has had a very successful swimming career. She is not finished with it yet as she has some unfinished business. This summer Avery participated in her first national level swim meet. In the ISCA National Summer Championships she qualified to swim at finals in the breaststroke events.
Go Avery....We are so proud of you!!
