PERSONAL: Born February 23, 1998 in San Francisco to Jennifer and Jay Ratcliffe... The second she stepped on USD's campus she knew "it was a place she could leave home for"... Her mother Jennifer swam at Whitworth College... Her swim club, Neptune Swimming, had two alums swim at the 2016 Rio Olympics. One of which (Maya Dirado) won four medals, including two golds... Notes she loves cats, baking, and watching YouTube.

What is your most memorable swimming/diving moment? Why?

Sophomore year at our championships I had to time trial 100 fly to get a cut for NCS. I was sick, and had to swim alone in the pool, but everyone lined the pool to cheer me on. It was deafening loud, and I ended up getting a best time and the NCS cut. 

Describe yourself as an athlete and as a student.  

I work extremly hard in both academics and swimming because I'm passionate about both. Swimming allows me to be competative and do what I love, and school allows me to learn about the world and all the amazing things in it.

What piece of coaching and/or personal advice has stuck with you over the years?

"Look from lightpost to lightpost- not the entire road in front of you"
