This week’s Cyclone Spotlight is Juli Lopez. Lopez is a junior on the swim team and had an incredible start to her season last weekend. The team hosted two large meets, a double dual meet featuring Biola University, Cal State East Bay, and the College of Idaho, and the annual Bay Area Invite, which added UC Santa Cruz to the mix. Over the course of the two meets, Lopez swam for a lifetime best time in the 100 free, beating her previous best from last year’s championship meet. She also matched her lifetime best times in the 50 free and the 200 free. In addition, she swam three new events very well.
Outside the pool, Lopez is the consummate team player. She works hard, supports her teammates, and is a leader, both on the team and on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee.
