STORRS, Conn. – The team captains for the 2013-14 Connecticut women’s swimming team were announced this week by head coach Bob Goldberg.

Seniors Catherine Chang and Kati Kyle and junior Holly Gallagher were all tabbed to captain a Connecticut team that has a lot of young talent heading into the season.

Chang, who came to UConn from Savage, Minn., has been a consistent performer for the Huskies in the 200 and 400-yard IM as well as the 200-yard breaststroke. She placed 14th in the 400-yard IM finals at the Big East Championships her freshman year, and as a sophomore at the conference meet she swam her best time in the 200-yard breaststroke.

Kyle was named the freshman of the year in 2011 and finished sixth in the backstroke event at the BIG EAST Championships in 2012. Last season, the Lithia, Fla. native finished second in the 100-yard backstroke at the UConn Open.

“I am excited about the leadership our senior class will bring to the team this season,” Goldberg said.

Gallagher, from Haddon Township, N.J., finished fifth at the 200-yard butterfly last season at the H2Okie Fall Individual, and earlier this year she won the 200-yard fly against Seton Hall on Senior Day. Goldberg believes Gallagher can sustain the success she’s achieved already in her first two years at UConn.

“I look forward to the long-term contributions Holly will make for us,” Goldberg said.

Connecticut kicks off this season October 19th against Yale. The meet is set for 1 p.m. at the Wolff-Zackin Natatorium in Storrs.
