"There was a lot of energy and time recruiting the best class we possibly could, Dailey said. "We still have 33 women who have applied regular decision and that group is as talented as the group above. There’s a place for everyone and having this many first years will keep the upper class paying attention and competing every day in practice. We are looking forward to finishing off the class as we move into April. It’s going to be a very exciting time for Lafayette College Swimming during the 2018-19 season."
