BARBOURVILLE, Ky. -- Union swimming coach Rafael Forti has announced that Kristin Gimson will join the Lady Bulldog program this fall. Grimson, a senior, will transfer into Union from the Northwest Missouri State.

"Kristin is a very experienced swimmer who has been involved with swimming in several levels, including USA Swimming and NCAA D1," said Forti. "I am very pleased she chose Union. I know she will create a positive impact right away in our program."
