Andrews Osborne Academy hosted a signing event for senior Alex Rosen as he signed a letter of intent to attend The Ohio State University on a swimming scholarship. Rosen joined the Andrews Osborne Academy student body this year as he pursued an intensive training program at SPIRE Institute. Through a partnership with SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, students attending AOA have the opportunity to train at SPIRE in swimming, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and track and field.
“We are pleased to see Alex continue his education and swimming career at The Ohio State University. He’s been an excellent addition to our student body,” states Charles Roman, Head of School at Andrews Osborne Academy. Rosen from North Salem, NY has been recognized on a national level. Rosen competed on the USA Junior Olympic team in 2009, receiving two team gold medals and placing 4th in individual freestyle. He also competed this year at Junior Nationals in Tennessee, placing 8th in the 800 free relay.
Athletic Director Vance Linamen states, “We are very proud of Alex and pleased to share in this special day.” He adds, “Rosen is an inspiration to all of our student athletes by demonstrating that it is possible to achieve his goals both in and outside the classroom.”
Rosen, whose passion for swimming began at eight years old, plans to one day compete at the Olympic level. He currently competes on the Lake Erie Silver Dolphins club team. “AOA teachers have been great working with me to have a flexible class schedule so that I can also focus on my training.”
