Alumni Update! Kara Seaton '05

I am excited (honored!) to be joining the Bates swimming and diving team for this year's training trip. There are many days when I am sitting hunched over textbooks or spending sleepless nights in the hospital that I think fondly on my Bates years and wish I was at Tarbell pool instead. Unfortunately, there is no one here to give me a "Cat Attack!" cheer. This will be a great opportunity for me to reconnect with the team, as well as get to know the "next generation" of Bobcat swimmers and divers. And all without having to endure the Maine winter weather! I am happy to trade the Nittany Lion for the Bobcat for a while, and I am looking forward to a great trip. See you in Florida!

Editors Note: Kara was a Psychology major and is currently enrolled in Med School at Penn State. She was a 6-time All American for the Bates Air Force in both 1 Meter and 3 Meter Diving. She graduated holding all 6 Varsity Diving Records and the Tarbell Pool 1 Meter Record (6 dives). An Academic All-American, a NESCAC Champion, and the career scoring leader in all diving events categories... needless to say, we are just as excited to have her back on the boards with us as she is to reconnect with the team and Coach Bartley!
