CRANFORD, NJ - Cranford High School senior Emily Wilson signed her letter of intent to swim at Lafayette College during a small reception at the school on Tuesday, surrounded by family, friends, coacher and teammates.

Wilson swam on the varsity swim team at CHS, where she recorded impressive times at the Union County Championships. She's excited to bring that same drive to Lafayette, she said.

"Cranford taught me to work hard for my goals so I was able to go to Lafayette," Wilson said. "That's important because in college I want to have that same type of discipline."
