Abby B. (YISS Class of 2016, Gordon College Swimming):
Throughout my life, swimming has always been a constant for me. At both YISS and Gordon, being a part of the swim team has stabilized my life in many different ways. Being a part of an athletics team in college has not only kept the infamous freshman fifteen at bay but has provided me with a group of friends that I care for and rely on. The transition to college would have been much more difficult if the swim team didn't have my back. I cannot thank my team at YISS enough for the care and support they gave me, and I hope that I did the same for them.
