LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Thursday at the Eisenhower High School Auditorium swimmer Deven Speed will sign to swim in college with Southern Illinois.
Deven has spent the past year taking college visits to help make her decision as to where she would enroll in school.
While Deven currently specializes in the 100 fly and 100 back, her coach in Lawton, Hannah Muirhead, said she feels like Deven is an all around talent in the water.
"She sometimes has to practice on her own or even travel to Oklahoma City,” Muirhead said, “but through all of that she's overcome so many challenges to become a division one swimmer and to really realize her dreams. I think she's an inspiration for young athletes that shows no matter what obstacles you have in front of you that if you work hard and dedicate your self you can do really big things."
The signing will be at 2 p.m. at the Eisenhower Auditorium.
