CMC Celeb: Annie Perizzolo
To those of you that follow CMS sports, this week's Celeb's recent accomplishments are no secret. Annie Perizzolo, a native of Aurora, CO, is a junior majoring in Management Engineering. She spends some of her time being a physics tutor, a mentor for Uncommon Good, and a Career Consultant for Career Services. Although she played soccer, basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, and ran track while growing up, Annie has now focused her athleticism towards swimming. Specifically, Annie swims the 100 and 200 breast, as well as the 200 and 400 IM. And you could say she has been pretty successful. This past year she took home two individual SCIAC records and titles in the 100 and 200 breast, as well as three SCIAC records and titles in the 200 Medley Relay, 400 Medley Relay and the 400 Free Relay (with the help of Elsa Cheng '13, Katie Bilotti '12, Emma Jones '12, and Jenni Rinker '11). To put this in to perspective, Annie broke not only a CMS record, but a SCIAC record - in two events! In March, she returned from the NCAA Division III Championships as the first Athena to ever bring home two national swimming titles. She's kind of a big deal.

Oh gosh. There are so many. Probably that Alex Mitchell and Kacey Klein make bomb corn dogs. And that Career Services always has yummy holiday candy on the front desk. Sorry, that's two again. Did I ever say making decisions was a strong point of mine?
