Life After Sports

UMBC Swimming and Diving Senior Class

Being a graduating senior has its advantages and disadvantages.  Last week I was able go on my first real Spring Break and not have to worry about staying in shape for swimming.  It was the first time this year I was able to take a relaxing vacation and not worry about anything. However, now that I no longer have to attend 9 practices a week, I don’t get to see some of my teammates as much as I would like to.  The swimmers here at UMBC are around each other roughly 17 hours a week when we are in season. Now that the seniors no longer have to attend practices we have a lot more time on our hands but we also don’t get to see everyone everyday, which means our college endeavor is coming to an end

Freshman, Emily Escobedo

Two swimmers on our team kept training after their conference championships in order to compete at the NCAA Championships. This past weekend Emily Escobedo competed at the women’s meet at the University of Minnesota. Emily swam a lifetime best time in the 200 IM and had her fastest morning swims in the 100 and 200 breaststroke.

Senior, Mohamed Hussein

This coming weekend Mohamed Hussein will be swimming the 200 IM, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke at the men’s NCAA’s competition in Austin, Texas.  NCAA’s will not be Mohamed’s last meet for this season, he will be swimming the 200 IM, 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke, and 50 freestyle at Egyptian Nationals April 5-9. He will continue to train in hopes of qualifying for next years World Championships in Kazan, Russia.Out of the pool, I have continued my internship with the Athletic Department and I have been able to work some more home athletic events.   Last weekend, I worked two softball games doing the batting music for the girls. I have also been able to work a couple men’s lacrosse games.  I have enjoyed learning what goes on behind the scenes at these different events.

Check out the UMBC Athletics website for updates on Mohamed’s 200 IM at NCAA’s this Thursday and stay turned to the Dawg Blog for more entries about UMBC athletics!
