Main Line Girls Athlete of the Week: Mia Abruzzo '21

Mia holds the Academy of Notre Dame records in the 50 free (24.19), 100 free (51.84 – tie), 500 free (4:46.89), 100 fly (54.91), 200 IM (1:59.24), 200 medley relay (1:45.37), 200 free relay (1:37.11) and 400 free relay (3:38.12). 

“Mia is the fastest swimmer the Irish have ever had,” said Academy of Notre Dame swimming coach Brigit Barry. “Maybe more importantly, she is a true leader on the team. She swam in events that we needed her to swim throughout her entire Irish career and could always be counted on to anchor a relay and swim her absolute best in any given race.”

Abruzzo is currently focusing on Olympic Trials that are coming up in June, and will swim the 200 fly and 400 IM. In the fall, she will swim for the University of Georgia.
