Dec. 28, 2017, 11:24 a.m. (ET)

Julia Grammatico, a 22-year-old member of the University of Michigan Synchronized Swimming Club, has been named the SwimOutlet.com Athlete of the Month for December.

Grammatico, who serves as team president, has helped grow the UM team from four competitive members to 12 in four years.

“Without Julia this growth would not have been possible,” says UM Coach Shelby Unsworth. “Julia is invaluable to the team. She manages team travel, fundraising, apparel, and registration. She is an incredibly hard worker in and out of the pool, and always maintains a positive attitude.”

Grammatico had no synchro experience when she joined the team, according to Unsworth, but she “excelled incredibly fast” and has earned a spot in the finals at the past three collegiate nationals. She has competed in solo, duet, trio and team at Collegiates.

“Our team would not exist if it wasn’t for Julia,” Unsworth says. “She deserves this recognition for her contribution to collegiate synchro and USA Synchro.”
