Notre Dame Swimmer Katie Preaskorn Signs With Wheeling Jesuit

Posted: Updated:
CLARKSBURG -

Notre Dame star swimmer Katie Preaskorn signed her letter of intent on Thursday morning to continue her swimming career at Wheeling Jesuit University.

Preaskorn said she had a close relationship with the swimming coaches at Fairmont State,  but ultimately wanted to attend college a bit further away from home.

She said she will specialize in the freestyle events for the Cardinals swim team.

"I could have gone to either Wheeling Jesuit or Fairmont State," Preaskorn said. "My club coaches are also the Fairmont State coaches. So it was a hard decision between the two because I didn't want to leave him, but I wanted something different."
