THS state swimming champ Sansoucie commits to Mizzou
Timberland High School senior Andrew Sansoucie has committed to swim for the Tigers of the University of Missouri. With his mother Nan and father David by his side, Andrew signed his National Letter of Intent at Timberland High School.
“I got to the campus, and Mizzou just felt right,” Sansoucie said. “I had the chance to spend some time with the team, and we all got along great. It was a good fit. The coaching staff is incredible, and I’ve already bonded with them.”
Andrew won two more state titles at this year’s Missouri State High School Swimming and Diving Championships Nov. 9 and Nov. 10 at the Rec-Plex Arena in St. Peters. Andrew won the 50-Freestyle with a time of 20.44 and broke his own state record winning the 100-Fly with a time of 47.96. According to USA Swimming, those are the No. 1 ranked times in the country for 18-year olds in those events this year. He was also named the Athlete of the Meet by the Missouri Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association for the second consecutive year.
Sansoucie qualified to swim in the Olympic Trials last summer in both events and his goal is to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
He plans on studying pre-med or secondary education while at Missouri.
