A storied history, rich in tradition and promise has marked the OHIO Swimming and Diving program. As an 11-time MAC Champion program, we have not forgotten our roots and recognize the talent and devotion dedicated to creating the legacy our program proudly proclaims in the pool and beyond.
Currently, our program is made up of student-athletes who after their time in the water, will go on to be nurses, business professionals, creators and social media specialists, engineers, and more. Currently, our program boasts a team Cumulative GPA of 3.618 and has invested its time in the Athens community through service. Our student-athletes are committed to all-inclusive excellence - in competition, in the classroom, and in the community.
This year, our area of support and need is focused on enhancing our team travel logistics. With your help, we can provide a flight trip for our student-athlete to St. George, Utah for a multi-team meet in October of 2023. Additionally, providing our team with proper gear and travel attire is a key area of focus to ensure we can provide a cohesive team experience for our student-athletes.
"Donor support is the single greatest opportunity to have a transformational impact on our program. Every gift will directly increase the overall experience and lead to even more goals achieved by the swimming and diving athletes. We are a program built on a championship legacy, and with significant donor support, the program can achieve even more goals" - Mason Norman, Head Coach
