Kodiak’s Marina Cummiskey is headed to the deep end of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

The reigning Alaska high school swimmer of the year will continue her career at Simon Fraser University, a NCAA D2 school in Canada.

As a senior, she won two individual state championships and helped Kodiak win a relay and medal in another relay at the state swimming and diving championships in Anchorage.

Cummiskey, of Kodiak High fame, won the girls 200-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly state titles.

She also won a title in the 200 medley relay, leading off with a 27-second split in the 50 back.

Cummiskey holds dual Canadian/USA citizenship.

“After considering several universities in both the United States and Canada, I ultimately felt that Simon Fraser best fit my personal goals both academically and athletically,” Cummiskey told the school’s website. “I am proud to become part of Canada’s NCAA team and to live in Canada and embrace that part of my identity.”
