NORWICH – Ashley Collier became part of a select group to qualify for YMCA Nationals when she earned a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in April of this year. Only one significant event remains in her long YMCA swimming career, and she is achieving a first in Norwich YMCA swimming history.
Collier, who initially qualified for Nationals in the 200-yard breaststroke, subsequently qualified for the YMCA Long Course national championships in College Park, Maryland this weekend. She met the national cut-off time in the 200-meters, while also qualifying in the 100-meter breaststroke.
