Rising sophomore Emma Terebo competed in the French Elite Long Course National Championships, which were held in Saint Raphael, France from May 22-27.

While representing New Caledonia, a French unique collectivity in the southwest Pacific Ocean, Terebo competed in two finals that included a fifth place finish in the 100m back behind a time of 1:02.37 after qualifying for the top heat in sixth at 1:02.87.

“Finishing fifth in France was a great achievement,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “She’s continuing to improve and I think she can make an even bigger impact on our team this upcoming season as a sophomore.”

Terebo also won the consolation final of the 50m back, touching with a time of 29.33 for ninth place overall following an 11th place finish in prelims at 29.81.

Additionally, Terebo competed in the 50m free to open the meet and clocked a time of 26.90 and placed 28th. She finished the meet swimming the 100 free and took 26th with a mark of 58.17.
