For Eliza, swimming runs in the family. Her older sister Rebecca and older brother Eric both swam in high school. Eliza has been swimming at the Y since she was 9 and has been a member of the Y’s Phoenix swim team for two years.
“I realized that swimming was my favorite sport in seventh grade and I decided to stop all other sports in order to focus on swimming,” said Eliza. “Since my freshman year in high school, I have had the goal of swimming in college.”
Eliza swam for the Moorestown High School swim team for all four years, and she holds a relay record in the 200 medley. She served as swim team captain during her senior year.
