Swimmer Angelica Sih ’20 announced her commitment to Cornell University, where she will continue her academic and athletic career, April 14.

“When I received the offer from Cornell to swim for them, I was speechless,” Sih said. “Cornell was my first choice, so getting an offer from them was definitely one of the happiest moments of my life.”

Sih started swimming when she was eight years old, and continued her career with the Wolverines beginning in ninth grade. 

Sih said she is grateful that she was given the opportunity to meet the many amazing people who are a part of the school’s  swim program.

“I’ve met some of my closest friends at HW through the swim team and I had so much fun getting to practice and compete with them,” Sih said.

During her freshman year, Sih broke the 100-yard backstroke school record with a 57.5 second time. Additionally, she has qualified for CIF Division I swimming competitions every year.

“I have qualified and placed for CIF every year and for CIF state individually my sophomore year, and placed sixteenth  at CIF state my junior year,” Sih said. “Along with my individual achievements, I qualified as a Scholastic All American both last year and this year.”
