Mollie Folk Commits to Emory
April 29, 2021
On April 14, 2021, Mollie Folk participated in the Signing Day Ceremony with two other students. For her, this means that next year, Mollie will swim for Emory University.
It has been Mollie’s dream to swim in college and she is very excited to complete this dream at Emory. She said, “Emory was the perfect fit for me because I love the school and the swim team. I am so excited to take advantage of all of the athletic and academic opportunities at Emory. I am also so excited to be a part of such a great team environment.”
I asked Mollie what advice she had for anyone who wants to play a sport in college and she said, “For anyone who wants to play a sport in college, I would definitely recommend not being afraid to reach out to coaches and advocate for yourself. There are so many different programs and schools, so it is so important to keep an open mind when looking to play a sport in college!”
Mollie contributes some of her success to her teammates and coaches who “pushed me to be a college athlete through constant support. “Everyone is always so excited for and supportive of the successes of others on the swim team.” Mollie developed a reputation as a great teammate and swimmer throughout her years at CCES, and she will be missed greatly next year.
