The 2013-2014 Men's Swimming Team at St. Andrews University continues to grow in depth and power, as Head Coach Brooks Teal announced the signing of three-time Junior College All American Teodoro Boscaino from Tampa, Florida Thursday.
Boscaino scored 4th, 5th, and 6th in the 2012 NJCAA Swimming Championships, competing in the 500 yard Free, the 200 Back, and the 200 Free. He competed for JC power Indian River State College and made a strong contribution to their NJCAA National Championship Team in 2011-2012. Competing for Tampa Bay Technical High School, Teodoro was a five time district champion, team captain and team MVP his senior year. He is the school record holder in both the 100 Back and the 200 Free.
Boscaino trains under Coach Randy Reese at Clearwater Aquatics and is a Short Course and Long Course Junior National qualifier for USA Swimming. Outside the pool, Teodoro stays busy giving back to his community. He has worked over 100 hours as a volunteer at the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital in Tampa. Boscaino plans to study biology at St. Andrews and is interested in pursuing a career in the medical field.
"Teo's success and experience at the Junior College Nationals will be invaluable in preparing him to be a leader for our team at NAIA Nationals next year," said Coach Teal. "He also brings a great training background to St. Andrews as he has worked with legendary Coach Randy Reese at Clearwater Aquatics. Coach Reese is known world-wide for his expertise in preparing swimmers to be successful at the highest levels, so it is great for our program to have a swimmer who has that background and experience. I could not be more excited about everything that Teo will bring to St. Andrews."
