BARC is excited to announce that Renata Porter has accepted the position as Swim & Dive Commissioner for the 2023 season! A native of New Hampshire, Ren was a multisport athlete with her main focus on swimming. She began her swimming career at the age of 5 at the USA Swimming level as a member of the Exeter Swim Team (EST). She participated on the team year round through the age of 18, in both the short course winter and long course summer seasons. Additionally, Ren was a member of the Exeter High School Varsity team while also competing with EST throughout her four years at Exeter High School. Although Ren excelled in breaststroke, she also competed in the top tier of individual medley swimmers. She has competed in each event offered through USA Swimming, including the 1500 freestyle. Upon graduating from high school she decided to retire from swimming and focus on her dual major in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Clarkson University. Her work in this field brought her to Ballston Spa, where she is excited to become involved with the community and swimming and diving once more.
