ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Ursuline senior All-American Bridget Blood is the reigning Ohio state swimming champion in three events. Last year she captured individual state titles in the 200 IM (2:01.58), and the 100 breastroke (school record 1:02.59), plus she was on the winning 200 medley relay team (state record 1:42.51). Her accomplishments were recognized by being named GGCL Swimmer of the Year, Cincinnati Div. I Swimmer of the Year and 1st team all-city for the third time.
Bridget also claimed an Ohio state swimming title her sophomore year as a member of Ursuline's victorious 200 medley relay team, and was state runner-up in the 200 IM. Bridget comes by her swimming skills naturally — mother Mary swam at Ohio State and dad Tim swam at Missouri.
Active in community service and a member of National Honor Society, she has committed to swim next season at the University of Alabama. Her favorite athlete is Missy Franklin, favorite entertainer is Kesha, and most-like-to-meet is SpongeBob SquarePants.
COACH'S QUOTE – "Bridget is a very competitive, motivated and hard working student-athlete that is determined to be the best that she possibly can be."
