Crews have recovered the body of a woman who drowned in East Fork Lake on Saturday, according to Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesperson Stephanie O'Grady.

Crews recovered the woman's body just after 1 a.m. Sunday. ODNR officials said the woman was 21-year-old Allyson Sidloski, from Strongsville, Ohio. On Sunday, the University of Cincinnati announced Sidloski was a sophomore at the university and a member of the UC women's soccer team.

O'Grady said the woman was hanging onto the swim platform of a boat before she went underwater Saturday evening, and she was not wearing a life jacket.

An investigation into her drowning is ongoing.

"ODNR reminds watercraft users to operate their equipment responsibly, always wear a life jacket and pay close attention to local conditions and posted advisories," O'Grady said.
