Dartmouth swimmer to swim for Holy Cross

Feb 5, 2020

Dartmouth’s Drew Kelly made his college athletic career official with a National Letter of Intent to join the College of the Holy Cross men’s swim team.


The Bishop Stang senior signed his NLI to join the Div. 1 swim program at the Worcester college.


At Stang, he swims the individual medley, with specialties in the backstroke and breaststroke, and participates in several relays for the boys’ swim team. His high school career includes being named the Fall River Herald All-Star, and an appearance on the Standard-Times Super Team. He was named an Eastern Athletic Conference Champion in his junior year.


Kelly made his college decision after meeting with Holy Cross Coach Jeff Barlok and his future teammates, and touring the campus. He hopes to become a dentist, and noted his college choice is a great fit academically for dentistry.


Kelly’s academic and athletic achievements at Bishop Stang have not gone unnoticed, as coaches and teammates noted they have benefited from the sense of purpose he brings to his meets.
