144 Burvill, a two-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week honoree, leads the team in the 50 free (22.84), 100 free (49.22), and 200 free (1:46.29). She holds school records in the 100 free and as part of the 200-medley relay, while her 200 free time is second and 50 free time is third in the record books. Aside from the adjustment of living on her own for the first time in a new country, Burvill's transition to Iowa City has gone smoother than anticipated. "e team has been welcoming, which has made the adjustment easier," she said. "ey're a great group of people." Burvill's goals for her first season are to work hard, take care of her body, and do everything she can to succeed. She grew up admiring swimmers on the British National Team and she is all in on the sport of swimming to see how far she can go. "My goal has always been to get as far as I can and to see if I can get there," she said. "I try to work as hard as I can in training to see where I can get to because you never know. (is year) being up with some of the top swimmers in the Big Ten is what I am working toward." It's the opportunity directly in front of her and Burvill came to America for opportunity.
