  2. Brittney Straw, Junior at UC Santa Barbara, Division I Mountian Pacific Sports Federation, or MPSF Conference:  Britt says "Working hard both in the pool and in school is really important as colleges really do look at grades.  Having good academics can be what ultimately gets you on a team.  In the recruitment process reach out and keep an open mind about as many schools as you can because you might be surprised by what schools want you and what school you end up wanting."
  4. Niki Kates, Junior at Willamette, Division 3 North West Conference:  Niki says "look for the difference in Division 1 vs Division 3.  Example:  It is not all about speed, lifestyle is important too.  On a campus visit, pay close attention to the sophomore class you meet.  Freshman are wild and they don't know what they're doing, and upper classmen wont be there when you arrive.  So the sophomores are often indicative of the team culture you get there."
