Owego's Kuchinsky commits to St. Bonaventure

Owego Free Academy swimmer Samantha Kuchinsky made her college choice official today, signing her national letter of intent to join the St. Bonaventure swim team next year. Kuchinsky holds four Owego swim records and has been a state qualifier since 8th grade and owns five individual Section IV Class B Championships.

Owego was recently named the coolest little town in America, and for Kuchinsky, she wanted that same feel out of her college of choice.

"I went on a recruit trip there in December, fell in love with the team, fell in love with the campus, basically fell in love with everything," she said "It has a lot of the small town feel like Owego does, because I wanted to get a little bigger, and going to college there's a little more people than Owego but I still have that home town feel, so I feel very comfortable there."

She is the third Owego swimmer in three years to attend St. Bonaventure.
