I’m so excited to announce my verbal commitment to Northern Arizona University to further my academic and athletic career. I’d like to thank my family, friends, and coaches who have supported me on this journey. GO JACKS!
Last November, the Desert Mountain High School junior competed at the Arizona Division II Girls State Championships. She swam the 200 free and the 100 fly, placing within the top 8 in prelims to earn a spot in finals for each. Her prelims 200 free time of 1:55.75 placed her 7th while her 58.46 100 fly seeded her 8th. She dropped 2.09 seconds in the finals heats of the 200 free, moving up to 4th, and she went a 57.76 in the 100 fly, remaining 8th. Both were personal best times for Outtrim.
Outtrim anchored Desert Mountain High School’s 400 free relay in finals. She clocked in at 53.35 in the 100 free for an 8th place finish. Kylie Ney, Carly Johnson, and Molly Wert were also members of the championship relay. Outtrim led off the team’s 200 free relay in a time of 25.05, and was followed by Wert, Johnson, and Ney for another 8th place finish.
