Though down from last year’s total, the number still exceeds the total number of teams participating in five out of the last 14 years.

CHATTANOOGA, TN- On Thursday evening July 2nd, the Baylor Swim Club hosted a private question and answer zoom meeting for its members and athletes with Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin and Baylor School alumni Kristen Vredeveld.
Baylor Swim Club athletes were asked to submit questions ahead of time for Missy and Kristen to answer. Franklin and Vredeveld have a unique bond, as they are great friends and were college roommates during their time swimming at the University of California at Berkley. Franklin and Vredeveld discussed various topics that ranged from swimmers’ diet, the best memories of their swimming careers, and how athletes have to deal with adversity in and out of the pool.
