Alyssa Storino to swim at University of Notre Dame

Trumbull High School senior Alyssa Storino, daughter of Laurie and Anthony Storino, signed a National Letter of Intent to swim for the FightingIrish at the University of Notre Dame beginning next fall.

Notre Dame, which finished 16th at NCAA Championships last year, will now swim in the ACC after many years in the Big East, which had included a streak of 15 straight championship wins.

After her official visit to Notre Dame, Storino said, “I knew it was the perfect fit for me to achieve my collegiate goals both in and out of the pool.

“The team and coaches are amazing and I am excited to study business at the (highly ranked) Mendoza School of Business.”

Storino is a member of the National Team and the women’s captain of the Wilton Y Wahoos swim club and previously swam for Trumbull High School during her freshman and sophomore years.

As a sophomore, she was the Class LL state champion and the State Open runner-up in 100 breaststroke.

She still holds the Trumbull High School record in the 100 breaststroke and the 200 medley relay, and was also selected to the CT All-Star girls swimming first-team, All-FCIAC and All-State teams.

“I’ve really enjoyed swimming for the Wahoos and I am grateful to Randy, Todd, Derek and all the other coaches and teammates who have helped me pursue my swim goals,” said Storino

Among her other swim accomplishments include being a 2013 Summer Jr National qualifier and participant; 2013 Winter Jr and Sr National qualifier; USA Swimming Scholastic All American for 2012 and 2013; CT Swimming Scholar Athlete for 2012 and 2013; CT state co-record holder in Senior 400M medley relay; Long Course 2013 YMCA Nationals runner-up in the 200 breaststroke (2:36.53), where she had the third fastest time in the 100 breaststroke (1:12.94); and participant in the 2013 Orlando Grand Prix (9th in 200M breaststroke and 11th in the 100M breaststroke.

Storino said, “The Grand Prix meet was so exciting, just being in the pool and on the deck with Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, Conor Dwyer and many other Olympians was really inspiring for me.”
