Coach Huston said: "Lauren is coming off an awesome year, in which she qualified for U.S. Olympic Trials in the 200 backstroke. Even better is that Lauren can swim great IM's and some mid-distance freestyle. She knows what it takes to commit to lofty goals and achieve them. We look forward to Lauren being a Rice Owl. She will make instant contributions to the personality of the team as well as in her athletic performance."
Lauren FitzGerald said: "I loved everything Rice had to offer: the team, the coaches, the academics, and the campus. It was such a great fit and I am so happy to be a part of it."
