Ashburn, Va. (November 12, 2014) – A college signing ceremony was held for Stone Bridge High School senior, Andi Mack, who formally committed by signing her National Letter of Intent (NLI) to swim for the University of North Carolina (UNC) “Tar Heels” at Chappell Hill in the elite Koury Natatorium commencing in the 2015 season. This event marked the culmination of ten years of competitive swimming in the local area. Andi swims for Nations Capital Swim Club under Coach Robbie Robins, and conditions under Coach Coco Buck. She also swims for Stone Bridge High School, where she holds many records and hopefully will capture more in her final season as a Bulldog. She specializes in butterfly and freestyle and is a National qualifier. Also, she is a very well rounded in her academics. She is graduating at the top 5% of her class and has been invited to attend the Loudoun County Academic Excellence banquet. Having visited quite a few universities over the past few months, Andi felt that UNC was the right fit her in terms of both academics and athletics. While Andi has had a few accomplishments along the way, she would like to give all the credit to her coaches and mentors for helping her achieve her dream to swim for a Division 1 school.
“ I decided to swim for UNC because the school’s swim program is outstanding and I really got a long with the coaches and swimmers. I believe that the coaches there will help me reach my potential at the college level. More importantly, though, the academics are exceptional and a UNC degree will help me a lot in the future.”- Andi Mack
Andi’s immediate and extended family were on hand today to support her on this momentous occasion, as well as her Stone Bridge family.
Andi is excited to be swimming with a great UNC team in the first-class Koury Natatorium.
