Anna DeMonte committed to swim at the University of Tennessee,
citing the great coaching as being the number one reason for her
choice. "Head coach Matt Kredich and assistant coach Jen Woodruff
are great people and terrific swim coaches. Every year their
swimmers drop time and achieve, and they are able to help all their
athletes do well. I want to be part of that tradition of
Anna also noted that she has been swimming with Club Wolverine, and before that Ann Arbor Swim Club, since she was seven years. "I really owe so much of my success to Dan Ohm and Bailey Weathers who coached me to some of my fastest swims in age group. The other great thing about CW are the swimmers. I have trained with some of the fastest kids in the state, and they have helped me swim faster and reach my goals."
Anna has an Olympic Trial cut in the 200 meter backstroke, and a senior national cut in the 200 meter IM, and holds several Michigan state age-group records. Her goal in college is to get an NCAA "A" cut and score at championships, preferably as a freshman. This summer she hopes to swim well at Olympic Trials, and hopes to be back again at Trials in 2016.
A huge congratulations to Anna Demonte. Anna joins over 65
other CW swimmers since 2006 to go to swim in college.
