As one of the girls swim captains here at NAHS, Caroline Ulrich hopes for another outstanding season with her team, leading them to success. Caroline said, “The team is looking good this year. Even though we lost a lot of our best swimmers last year, we gained some swimmers that can really help us progress as a team.”
Ulrich has been swimming ever since she was young, and is hoping to have a successful last season here at NAHS. Caroline said, “The girls team’s goal is to win the Hockomock League meet, but individually we hope to have every swimmer improve greatly and have a fun season.”
As for strokes, Caroline’s favorites are the backstroke and freestyle. She said, “I typically race the 100 back and the 200 free.” Ulrich has many personal records including her 100 backstroke time of 1:10 and 200 freestyle time of 2:18.
In her downtime, Caroline likes to swim, hangout with friends and walk her dog. She enjoys snacking on pretzels, and her favorite meal is fettuccine alfredo.
Caroline’s favorite television shows are Orange is the New Black and The Office, “I enjoy these shows because Steve Carell is hysterical and it’s interesting to see what female prison life is like.”
School is very important to Caroline, and her favorite class this year is Finite Math. “Finite Math is easy to understand, and I have Ms. Churchill who is one of my favorite teachers,” said Ulrich.
Caroline has applied to many colleges, such as Bridgewater State University, Fitchburg State University, Assumption College and Worcester State University. She said, “My top schools are Assumption College and Bridgewater State University.”
For a career, Caroline is looking to become a teacher: “I want to get my masters in elementary education and become an elementary school teacher.”
As senior year progresses Caroline hopes to maintain good health, and good academic throughout the school year. Caroline hopes to make this swim season memorable, and lead her teammates to work hard and succeed throughout the season.
