Jessica Trainer Carey was part of a deep and talented synchronized swimming program that routinely competed with and fared well against the nation’s best squads. Carey and her Storm teammates earned top-7 finishes at the U.S. Collegiate Synchronized Swimming Championships all four years, led by sixth-place finishes in both 1999-2000 and 2000-2001.

During her time with the synchronized swimming program, Carey was a four-time captain who made an instant impact on the team. In her freshman season, Carey was named All-American after placing in the top 8 in the nation for her solo routine. In 2001, Carey qualified for the Jantzen National Synchronized Swimming Championships (one meet away from the Olympic qualifier), and during her senior season, she earned Team Most Valuable Player honors for the second straight year after placing eighth in the nation in the duet. Carey and her husband, Matt Carey (’01), have a three-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son.
