Finnegan commits to Delaware for swimming

Meghan Finnegan (´23) has committed to the University of Delaware for swimming. Finnegan has been swimming for the past 14 years. She has been swimming for Cherry Hill East since her freshman year and for her club, Jersey Wahoos. Finnegan was at a swim meet when Delaware first found out about her. The meet was in July, and soon after, they reached out to Finnegan’s coaches. They then started to take a closer look at Finnegan and even went to her swim championship.

After speaking to the coaches, Finnegan set up an official tour of the school. Soon after the tour, she committed to the school. 

Finnegan doesn’t do just one stroke, ¨I do everything. I am an IMer¨ Finnegan stated. 

Finnegan is currently undecided with her major but always knew she wanted to swim in college. Finnegan works extremely hard and balances her athletic and academic career by taking advantage of her free time, especially in study halls. ¨I try to get most of my work done in school.¨

Finnegan’s biggest piece of advice to aspiring college athletes is to, ¨work hard and don’t let anything get away from you.¨

Finnegan states that her biggest inspiration was her mother, who supported her. 

Time management has been Finnegans biggest struggle throughout her time as a student-athlete. We hope Finnegan succeeds at the University of Delaware.
