Six-time Nebraska high school state freestyle finalist Morgan Baker will be keeping her talents in state. The Hastings, Nebraska, native committed to head east and swim collegiately for Division I school the University of Nebraska-Omaha beginning in the fall of 2020.
“I’m super excited to announce my verbal commit to further my academic and swimming career at the University of Nebraska-Omaha,” Baker said. “I am beyond grateful for my coaches, friends, and family who have helped and supported me along the way. I can’t wait to be a part of this incredible team. Go Mavs‼️”
Baker was a finalist in the 100 free and 50 free at the 2019 Nebraska School Activities Association State Championships in February, finishing fourth in the 100 (53.55) and fifth in the 50 (24.41). Baker also was part of Hastings High School’s 14th place 200 free relay and 15th place 400 free relay teams.
