Thinking beyond what it means for the brothers to both be contributing to the Sun Devils, it also means a great deal for the Stallworth family dynamic. With Lane teaming up with Jackson in Tempe, the Stallworth family can now boast that all four siblings are Division I athletes.
Jackson and Lane’s triplet sister, Aspen, and older sister, McKenna, currently swim for the University of the Incarnate Word back in San Antonio.
Consider it a four-for-four Stallworth special.
“I think it’s a great testament to our whole family dynamic, the way our parents raised us, and the mindset that we all share,” Jackson said.
“For us to be on the same team again means so much to me,” Lane added. “Growing up, everyone knew us as ‘Lane the diver’ or ‘Jackson the swimmer.’ I’m really looking forward to this season.”
Their mother, Jenny, shares her boys’ excitement, relishing an opportunity they’ll cherish forever.
“I am so excited to have my boys on the same team together at ASU,” she said. “To be both brothers and teammates during college is an incredibly special experience that they will remember forever.”
Catch the Stallworths in action, including Lane’s debut with the new-look dive program, on Friday, September 23, when the team hosts its annual Maroon & Gold Meet at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center. The competition, which will include a pentathlon format for the swim team, will begin at 3 pm
