Sulinke’s favorite thing about swimming is “When hard work pays off. The memories, friendships, the suffering together as a team. The determination, respect and discipline it builds”. Coach Alex is excited to have Sulinke sign onto the team and see her develop both as an athlete and a leader. Sulinke says she fell in love with UJ during her virtual tour. She is excited about the snow, religion, small family sized university, her new swim coach, the warmth, friendliness and a sense of belonging as well as the strong academics the university has to offer. Sulinke will be a strong representative for our team, we can tell already! She says “Jimmy blood is already running through my veins. So excited!”. We are so excited to have you too Sulinke! Jimmie Pride!!
