Godsoe posted the nation’s fourth-fastest 100 backstroke (48.26) and 200 backstroke (1:47.00) times in the country, sweeping the 50, 100 and 200 backstroke events. He is the reigning Pac-10 Champion in the 100 and 200 backstrokes and is a 10-time All-American.
When in Greensboro, Godsoe trains with Coach Kevin Thornton of GSA. He is the son of Gene and Yoko Godsoe and a 2006 graduate of Southeast Guilford High School.
