Aidan Keillor – Dickinson College (Swimming)


Major:  Biology


Final list of colleges:  Dickinson, Gettysburg, Ursinus


Reasons for choosing Dickinson:  “Dickinson has a great academic rating and good swim team. I really felt that I connected with the coach.”


What was the progression that led you to competing in swimming at the collegiate level?  “I have been swimming since I was four years old, and it has always been a dream of mine to swim in college. I started the recruiting process by emailing college coaches to say that I was interested in swimming at their school. After a successful junior swim season, a number of coaches got in touch with me asking me to come to the school for a visit. Due to COVID, the visit was a one-on-one tour with the coach. I loved Dickinson the minute I set foot on campus. I can’t wait to continue my swimming career at the collegiate level.”


Coach Geoff Scheuer says:  “Aidan Keillor, the little engine that could. I’ve had the pleasure of coaching Aidan since day one, since he was about four years old and started swimming summer league. I’ve been his coach every day since then. It’s been quite a journey watching him grow up in every possible way a person can grow up. He was a consummate leader as a captain this past year. He fought for everything he earned over the course of his whole career, and it’s been amazing to watch. He is somebody who you could say overachieved, but at the same time, he worked for it so he earned it.”
