NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Brendan Everman has been elected captain of the Yale men's swimming and diving team for the 2005-2006 season. A valuable contributor in the distance events, Everman placed in the top 16 in the 400IM, 1000 Free, and 1650 Free at the 2005 EISL championships.
A graduate of Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif., Everman was an Academic All-American and captained both the water polo and swim teams. He chose Yale over USC because of the balance the school maintains between academics and athletics, as well as the great team chemistry. Brendan hails from a swimming family, as his mother, Jean, competed for Cal State University - Northridge and his older brother, Joel, was an All-American for USC.
"It is a tremendous honor to be elected captain by my teammates," said Everman. "We have a tremendously talented team, both in and out of the water. With a strong recruiting class and many returning swimmers, next year looks to be a great year for Yale Swimming, and I am excited to be a part of that."
