Penn swim team ‘dodge bullet’ on camp in Florida as winter hits home



Early morning practice may not be what college students want to do over winter break. But it sure beats what their friends and families are doing back home.

“It’s a high of 12 and a low of -12, 100% chance of snow, they’re supposed to get 2 feet it’s wild,” said Christina Hurley, a swimmer on the University of Pennsylvania swim team.

“I called home last night and my wife and son are shoveling a foot of snow off our driveway. I’m much happier to be down here, our whole team is too,” said head coach Mike Schnur.
