UofL SWIMMING | Cardinals well represented on national stage

07/10/2017 05:52 PM

The Louisville swimming team is continuing to grow its national reputation, this time by sending swimmers to three different levels of international competitions: the World Championships, the World University Games, and the Junior World Championships.

Two very familiar names will compete at the world championships. National champions Mallory Comerford and Kelsi Worrell both made the national team. Zach Harting will compete in the butterfly at the World University Games, and his teammate Andrea Cottrell will swim the breaststroke. And incoming freshman Nick Albiero will compete in the Junior World Championships after winning a national title in the trials.

The international stage is nothing new to Worrell. She says she is excited to watch her former teammates compete at the professional ranks which is a totally different type of competition.

U of L head coach Arthur Albiero is proud to see all of his swimmers excel, but was open that watching his son Nick advance to the Junior World Games was something special. Nick on the other hand was simply happy to start his UofL career on the right foot.
