Glenvar Star Signs with Gators

Posted: Updated:

    Two time VHSL swim champion Ben Kennedy signed with the University of Florida today.  He chooses the Gators over Indiana and Virginia.  Kennedy won the 100 backstroke and the 100 butterfly in the VHSL Group A/AA meet in February held at the Christiansburg.  Kennedy's father swam for the Gators in the 1980's.  Kennedy says it was a tough decision but he choose Florida because of both academics and the swimming program in Gainesville. After a visit a couple of weeks ago Kennedy says it just felt like the place for him.
