COLELLA ON ORSTEIN

"I am excited about Kaitlyn joining us this season because of her versatility. She is so accomplished in so many areas, people look to her now as a breaststroker and an IMer, but she could be a threat in so many different areas. It is going to be fun to be able to move her around in dual meets and potentially conference and be an impact no matter where we place her. She loves to compete."
