Stephen Parry came to Florida State all the way from Liverpool, England in 1996 and he changed Seminole swimming from the day he stepped on the campus. Parry earned individual NCAA All-America honors all four years and a total of eight times in three different strokes during his historic FSU career. At one time, Parry held the school record in the 200 Butterfly, 500 Freestyle, 200 IM, 100 Butterfly and 100 Backstroke. He helped lead Florida State to its finest run in school history with Top 20 finishes in each of his four years including a ninth place finish in 1997 that remained FSU highest finish ever through at least the next 15 years. As a senior in 1999, Parry and teammate Brendon Dedekind were co-ACC Championship Swimmer of the Meet winners. He won the three individual events and was on three first place relay teams at the ACC's. He set the conference record in the 100 Backstroke in 1999 and the school record in the 200 Butterfly (1:43.69) the same year. Parry competed in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games as a member of the British team earning a Bronze Medal in the 200-meter Butterfly in 2004.
