Gordon to join brother at Xavier
Sycamore senior Michael Gordon signed a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to swim for Xavier University next fall.
Gordon, who qualified for last year's state meet in the 200-yard individual medley and 100 breaststroke as an individual, said he had a couple of options on his list of schools but the familiarity of having older brother David Gordon and former DeKalb-Sycamore co-op teammate Chad Thompson on the squad helped push him to Xavier.
"It's definitely nice knowing some of the people there, but the team themselves, everybody on the team was great to me when I went for a visit," Gordon said. "The campus is great, there's new dorms, a new business school."
Gordon said he's been up to Xavier a few times and is
considering majoring in business.
