When the exercise science and music double major returned to Albion in fall 2013, he headed to the pool to put his knowledge into action, and the coaches noticed him perfecting his form. As a sophomore, all that fine-tuning – not to mention YouTube-viewing – paid off, and Crinion placed fifth on both the 1-meter and 3-meter boards at the conference championships. This year, after sitting out his junior season because of rigorous courses, he hopes to top that performance.
