Stafford, Virginia-native Annalee Johnson will return to her home state in the fall to swim for Virginia Tech in her final two years of eligibility.

“So excited to announce my commitment to Virginia Tech! Incredibly honored to have the opportunity to swim for Coach Sergio Lopez Miro and Coach Josh Huger. Their knowledge, positive energy, and insurmountable record are unmatched and I’m so thankful to be able to represent VT! Go Hokies!”

She was the Nittany Lions’ top breaststroker for the 2016-17 season. This past year she notched the team’s second-best times in the 100/200 breast. Her last meet was the 2018 Ohio State Winter Invite.
