"I am very excited for the 2015-16 season to get started, as are all the FAU swimmers and divers. They are looking forward to swimming faster and stronger than last year, as well as thriving academically throughout the season," said Lara Preacco, FAU's swimming and diving head coach.
"The incoming freshmen this year have certainly added to our team's desire to work hard and achieve at the highest level. I look forward to many broken personal and school records and NCAA A & B cuts for the FAU Swim & Dive Team this year."
