Rachael DePietro has signed a National Letter of Intent with Marshall this week. The Thundering Herds Swimming & Diving Team is led by Coach Bill Tramel.

DePietro is a senior at Lancaster Catholic High School. Her coach at Catholic High is Miles Cubbison. She also swims for Mike Swanson at Diplomat Swim Club.

"The most exciting thing about this class is four of the incoming freshmen (of 2014-15) have already swam faster as high school juniors than six of our Marshall school records,” said Tramel in a release.

She is expected to play a large role in Marshall’s team in backstroke. Her best time is 59.02 in the 100 backstroke, 53.95 in the 100 freestyle, and 25.02 in the 50 freestyle, according to a release from Marshall.

DePietro, on her profile, says she chose Marshall because of “the coaching staff, academics, and my future teammates.” She called the selection “a perfect fit for me.”

Marshall University is located in Huntington, West Virginia.
