Jamal Willis OPC '13 Headed to Olympic Trials

Jamal Willis OPC '13, a junior at Lehigh University, on Dec. 3 locked in a trip to Olympic Trials in Nebraska, where he will compete for a spot in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

Willis, who is studying business management, is Lehigh's school record holder in his signature event, the 50 meter freestyle, with a time of 20.07, his personal best. Willis, you'll recall from a recent PC SportsZone post, held the PC pool record for the 50 freestyle event for several years. 

Willis and his Lehigh University teammates were the first Lehigh students in 40 years to qualify for trials. Read more over at Lehigh Sports.

Great job, Jamal! Go Charter!
