Rising sophomore Danielle Boothe became the first Liberty swimmer to compete internationally when she participated in a pair of relays for Jamaica during the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. The swimming competition wrapped up on Saturday at the CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Aquatics Centre.

A native of George Town, Grand Cayman, Boothe joined Alia Atkinson, Trudian Patrick and Breanna Roman to comprise Jamaica's women's swimming contingent at this year's Pan Am Games.

The quartet posted its best showing on Saturday, qualifying for the final with a seventh-place finish during morning prelims of the women's 4X100 medley relay. Boothe swam a 1:06.78 leadoff leg, as Jamaica qualified in 4:24.18.

During Saturday's evening final of the 4X100 medley relay, Boothe dropped her leadoff split to 1:05.89, helping her team place seventh in 4:14.58. Jamaica improved by nearly 10 seconds over its morning swim, nearly catching sixth-place Venezuela (4:13.88).

Boothe and her teammates opened the week on Tuesday by placing eighth in the women's 4X100 freestyle relay. After qualifying for the final in 3:59.09, Jamaica finished eighth with a finals time of 3:56.01. Boothe swam third for the Jamaican team during the evening final, clocking a 1:00.22.

She currently holds five Jamaican National Age Group records, and held a pair of Caribbean Free Trade Association (CARIFTA) recorded for five years.
