SBY's Sydney Nelson Signs With Berry College

Nick Lambert

Swim Birmingham YMCA's own Sydney Nelson has signed a letter of intent to attend and swim for Berry College in Mt. Berry, Georgia!  Sydney will join the Berry Vikings in the fall of 2019 as an immediate scoring threat for the team in Butterfly, Breaststroke, and IM events in the Southern Athletic Conference.

Sydney joined SBY at the age of 9 and finishes her club swimming career as a YMCA National Qualifier, Southeastern Swimming Finalist, and Team Captain of Vestavia Hills High School Swim Team.

Sydney has done a phenomenal job balancing her athletic and academic career as she wraps up her Senior year at Vestavia Hills High School.  Sydney graduates with a 4.7 GPA, sports an amazing 35 on her ACT, is a National Merit Finalist, and a coveted member of the VHHS Debate Team.

We are so excited for Sydney as she continues her athletic career, but more importantly her academic career at Berry College!  GO SBY and GO Berry Vikings!
