Boys Varsity Swimming, Girls Varsity Swimming · Follow Up to Collins’ Signing!

During Winter Sport Media Day, MVHS Senior Taylor Collins signed to swim at Southern Illinois University.  Taylor has been swimming now for 8 years and her best events are the 200 yd Butterfly, 200 yd Backstroke and the 500 yd Freestyle events.  Besides earning All-Conference honors, Collins advanced to the finals at Senior State for the 200 yd ‘Fly.



At SIU, Taylor plans to continue swimming these events while studying business entrepreneurship.  She chose SIU due to its location, under 2 hours from home, and she enjoyed meeting the coaches and swimmers.  Southern Illinois University felt like “home” when she toured the campus.  SIU is located in Carbondale, IL.  They are a Division 1 school and compete in both the MAC and MVC conferences for swim.


We are proud of you and wish you the best of luck as a Saluki!
