WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University men's swimming coach Kaymee Kelly has added Avery Alexander from Baker High School in Mobile, Alabama to her 2017-18 squad.


"I am so very happy to welcome Avery Alexander to our Skyhawk family," commented Coach Kelly.  "He is a hard-working, coachable student-athlete, a great teammate and friend and serves his community.  I know what an impact Avery will make in and out of the pool from his excellent grades to his significant time drops that led him to qualify for the State Meet in Alabama.  I can't wait to see what his future holds here at Point University."


Son of Nancy Alexander of Mobile, Avery serves as team captain of his high school swimming team, which is coached by Barbara Waltsgott.  He swam sectional and state qualifying cuts in his each of his last three seasons.


Alexander also is active in service to his church and his community.  He has participated in service projects with organizations such as Animal Rescue Foundation and a mission trip to Costa Rica. He also is involved as a leader in camps with the youth ministry at Christ United Methodist Church in his hometown.


Alexander commented on why he chose Point as the place where he will continue his education and competitive swimming career, "On my first visit to Point University, I found a home of opportunity and Christian morals.  Ever since I started swimming it has been my goal to become a college athlete, and for me, Point is a chance to accomplish the goals of furthering my education and strengthening my faith."
