College of Saint Mary head swimming coach Rich Draper announced that nine athletes have signed to join the Flames in 2010.
"This is a great class we have coming in,” said Draper. “We have a lot of talent, potential and to top it off they are all great students. I expect us to be much better than last year. It is excited since we had a great year (2009) and the team did such a great job building a foundation for our team. We have established the work ethic in and out of the pool to make the team great."
The new signees will be joining a Flames swimming program that is coming off a successful first season and trip to the NAIA National Swimming Championships.
