Lafayette, Louisiana-native Ashley Gill has announced her verbal commitment to swim for the University of Missouri beginning in the 2021-2022 season. Gill attends Ascension Episcopal School in Lafayette where she is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. The rising senior is a 4-time LHSAA Division 4 State Champion, having won the 100 back and 100 fly as a junior and the 100 free and 100 back during her sophomore season. In November, she broke the LHSAA Division 4 record in the 100 fly with her winning 55.60. She also won the backstroke by 6 seconds 57.68, swam fly (24.34) on the winning 200 medley relay, and led off (52.88) the state-champion 400 free relay.
