It’s official: A quartet of hard-working Asphalt Green Unified Aquatics Swim Team athletes will continue their swimming careers representing various top colleges in the fall.


We welcomed the AGUA Swim Team and families to our Upper East Side campus on November 11 to witness the excitement of National Letter of Intent Signing Day, a commitment from an athlete to compete at a specified college.   


Nicole Aarts and Olympic Trials-qualifier Krystal Lara signed National Letters of Intent to Northwestern University, and Carly Fried signed with Pennsylvania State University. We also celebrated Aaron Glas, who plans to swim for Princeton in the fall.  


The room was filled—not a single empty seat—with pride and spirit. Friends and family were decked out in their respective school’s colors, and the celebration continued with college-themed cookie cakes and other homemade treats.


Huge congratulations to our AGUA athletes. We know you will all do great things—in and out of the pool!
