Why Princeton: I chose Princeton because the atmosphere is unparalleled, both on the team and on campus. In my short time there I felt that I really connected with the team members and that they were a group with whom I could grow both as a swimmer and as a person. The team is light hearted and relaxed, which is perfect. The campus is simply awe-inspiring and I cannot believe I'll only have four years there.

Orr on Rutkin

“Lance will be another welcomed addition to our distance crew. He immediately stuck out in the recruiting process as someone who would be a terrific fit for our program. Like his classmates, he had a terrific senior year and will be very competitive in the league.”
