Anna Lancaster and Claire Hays have both committed to SWIM at William Jewell College!

Anna plans to major in nursing. Her brother Stephen is a junior at Jewell. Anna says that she chose Jewell because of their advanced academic and athletic programs. Claire plans to major in accounting, with an interest in working in finances after college. Her sister Katie will graduate from Jewell this year, and her brother Connor is a sophomore there. Claire says that she chose Jewell because of the welcoming swim team, beautiful campus, and outstanding academic programs. When she visited this fall, Claire was impressed with the positive things that students and swimmers said about Jewell, and knew she wanted to be a Cardinal, too. Claire has helped her older sister move into college at Jewell every year for the past 4 years, and she can’t wait for her own move-in day next fall!

Anna and Claire have been dedicated members of our swim team for many years. They are outstanding students, athletes, and role models. They give back to the sport of swimming by coaching and teaching swim lessons. The picture they shared with us give a happy glimpse of two great friends who starting swimming together many years ago, and will now continue their journey together in college.  We are proud of all they have accomplished and know they will continue to shine at Jewell!

Congratulations, Claire and Anna!
