Goshen, Indiana-native Sydnee Emerson has announced her verbal commitment to swim for Purdue University beginning in the 2018-19 season. She will join recent commit Tessa Wrightson in the class of 2022.

She was a top-8 finisher in the 100/200 breast, 200 fly, and 200/400 IM, and a B finalist in the 100 fly, at Indiana Swimming Senior State Short Course Championships in March. She wrapped up her long course season competing in the 100/200 breaststrokes at Summer Junior Nationals.
