Jasper senior Carmina Armstrong has had a dominant career swimming with the Wildcats and now will be taking her talents to the collegiate level where she'll swim with the Indiana State Sycamores.

A Q&A with Jasper senior swimmer Carmina Armstrong who recently signed her letter of intent to swim collegiately at Indiana State University.

What was the biggest factor into your decision to swim collegiately? At first I had some doubts but then once I thought about it, I’ve been swimming competitively since I was six and I feel like I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t have swimming in my life.
What stood out about Indiana State over the other schools that you visited? I chose Indiana State because it had the major I was thinking about going into and when I went on my recruiting visit, they seemed like family to me and that was something that I needed.

During your time at Jasper, who or what do you feel most prepared you to swim in college? Both of my coaches — I had coach Jenae (Gill) my first two years and goach Kristen (Gutgsell) my final two years and they both helped me reach this point and prepared me for this moment.

What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Jasper? I would say being able to be a part of two relay teams that set school records.

If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Crazy.
