Seven King School standout senior student-athletes were recently recognized in the Upper School gym and celebrated in front of friends and family members for moving on to participate in collegiate athletics at the NCAA Division I and Division II levels.
Among them was Elizabeth Boeckman of Greenwich who will swim at Princeton University next fall.
Elizabeth swims year-round for the Chelsea Piers Aquatics Club in Stamford, which she joined in 2016 after relocating to King School from London, England (where she swam for the Chelsea Westminster Swimming Club).
Elizabeth came in first place in the 500 and 1000-yard freestyle at the 2018 Speedo East Coast Sectionals in Ithaca, and recently placed third in the 1650-yard freestyle at the Speedo Winter Junior Nationals in Greensboro.
Over the summer, Elizabeth came in first place in the 800-meter freestyle at the ISCA TYR Summer Senior Championship in Florida, where she also had five other top ten finishes.
In England, Elizabeth finished in the top six at the British National Summer Championships in 2016 and won English Nationals in the 800-meter freestyle in 2015. Elizabeth is ranked third overall in Connecticut for her year group, is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, and a King scholar. Elizabeth has volunteered for the New Covenant Center in Stamford and works at the Siasconset Casino Tennis Club in the summer. She is excited to attend Princeton in the fall and to swim for the Tigers!
