As a three-time Coastal Collegiate Sports Association and FGCU record holder, Svensson was the two-time (2013,2015) CCSA Women’s Most Outstanding Performer of the Meet in addition to the 2013 CCSA Swimmer of the Year. She also helped the Eagles to four-straight CCSA titles.
Academically, she was selected as the NCAA Elite 89 award winner in 2013, which is given to the student-athlete with the highest GPA at the NCAA Championships. Svensson was tabbed as the CCSA Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2015 along with the Eagle Scholar-Athlete Award.
A native of Uppsala, Sweden, Svensson graduated from FGCU in 2015 where she majored in business economics and completed her master’s degree in the spring of 2017 at Florida State in financial mathematics.
