Broad signs with Toledo

The Chatham Daily News - - SPORTS -

Madi­son Broad of the Chatham Y Pool Sharks has signed with the Univer­sity of Toledo.

The Wal­lace­burg na­tive has won nu­mer­ous medals at the Cana­dian age-group and ju­nior cham­pi­onships. She also swam in three ‘A’ fi­nals at the 2017 Cana­dian se­nior cham­pi­onships.

The Ur­su­line stu­dent has al­ready met the NCAA

Di­vi­sion I stan­dards in the

100 and 200 back­stroke.

Broad is ex­pected to join

Toledo for the

2019-20 sea­son.

“She is a re­ally tal­ented swim­mer and

(has) got a lot of po­ten­tial,” Toledo coach Jonas Persson said in a news re­lease from the Pool Sharks. “But I was mostly im­pressed with her at­ti­tude and en­thu­si­asm for not only swim­ming, but with life. At Toledo, we fo­cus on three things: One, hav­ing fun; two, train­ing hard; and three, do­ing things the right way, and Madi­son fits in per­fectly with that con­cept.

“My ex­pec­ta­tions of Madi­son are that she keeps on en­joy­ing the sport, trains hard, and stays hun­gry for suc­cess. She will in­stantly be a con­trib­u­tor on the team and I’m very ex­cited to be able to as­sist her in be­com­ing an Olympian”
