Immaculate High School’s Rachel Meurer Signs to Swim at College

DANBURY—Immaculate High School student-athlete Rachel Meurer signed a National Letter of Intent to attend St. Lawrence University for Fall 2017 at a special signing ceremony recently.

The Danbury resident will continue her swimming career at St. Lawrence College in Canton, NY. Rachel was one of the founding members of the Immaculate High School (IHS) girls swim team four years ago and was captain her senior year. She currently holds the IHS school records for both the 200 freestyle relay and for the 4×50 relay with her IHS teammates from the 2016 season. Rachel continues to maintain her abilities in the pool by swimming year round for the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut Makos swim team.

“Rachel is not only an excellent swimmer, she is also a strong academic student, carrying her hard work ethic and dedication to all that she puts forth in and outside the classroom,” said Jeff Castaldi, IHS Athletic Director. “Besides involvement in many extracurricular activities at IHS, she’s also a member of the National Honor Society and a recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” he added.
