Advice to Buckeyes: “Those hard workouts, those early mornings, those incredibly difficult swim throughs over and over again will only make you stronger not only in the pool but in life. Holly taught me that if it doesn’t challenge you then it doesn’t change you.”
Favorite Buckeye Memory: Swimming in Hawaii at the US Open, the long winter training practices at Larkins pool, and Holly’s “Tootsie Roll” eggbeater workout.
