Guziec is a former Level 9 gymnast and multisport athlete who didn’t start diving seriously until her first year of high school. Since then she has set the records of 6 and 11 dives (253.30 / 447.85) at the high school and district level of Frisco ISD. At the 2021 Texas UIL 5A State Championships, she came second in diving (428.50 points) and was named 1st All-District, All-Region and All-State team. She also won 2020-21 NISCA All-America and TISCA Academic All-State honors. As a junior, she placed third in diving at the UIL 5A State Meet and was named 1st All-District, All-Region and All-State team.

Guziec currently trains with coach Justin Ruszkowski at GC Divers and Claudia Sunday at Memorial High School. She was a 2021 AAU Diving All-American on the 1m and 3m boards, and a USA Diving Zone B qualified on 1m, 3m and platform.

The Hokies scored 39 points on 3m, 24 on platform and 19 on 1m at the 2021 ACC Women’s Championships. The two divers who scored, then juniors Teagan Moravek and Izzi Mroz will both have graduated by the time Guziec starts.

Guziec will join the 2026 class with Carmen Weiler, Caroline Foltz, Emily Claesson, Isabel Marstellar and Sydney DeBaecke.
