Webb swimmer signs scholarship papers to compete in college

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Senior standout swimmer, Jack Hamilton, signed Thursday scholarship papers to compete as part of the University of Pennsylvania swim team.

Hamilton has competed at Junior Nationals and USA Swimming Futures championships. He placed third in the 200-yard individual medley and fourth in the 100-yard backstroke at the Tennessee State High School Swimming and Diving championship meet. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American has been named captain for two consecutive years on the Webb swim team.

"This school [Webb] is a big part of my journey as an athlete because my teachers here and my friends are really understanding of my process as an athlete, and dedication to school work so I think doing a signing here was really special to me," said Hamilton.
