Congratulations to Edie Ancell who has signed a scholarship agreement with the Monmouth University Swimming Team! Edie is from Auckland (NZ) and has been working with us over the last year. Edie has worked extremely hard in the swimming pool and her swimming times spoke for themselves!

Monmouth University is located in New Jersey and competes within the NCAA Division 1 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Edie will start her college campaign in the Fall 2022 and will be joined by 2 other Platform athletes there with Luke Hitchcock (Track), and Samuel Poching (Tennis).

We are so proud of Edie and we cannot wait to watch her compete this fall! Next stop, New Jersey.

From Edie:

“The big thing that excites me about the US college system is the team aspect of it all. I love swimming; it is a huge part of my life; however, here in New Zealand, it feels very individualistic. I consider myself an extroverted person and have missed that team environment since I stopped playing netball and water polo. I’m hoping that I can join a program that is a very close nit bubbly team full of excitement which all support each other in achieving our own goals.”
