Riley Tapley, a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Superior, Colorado has announced her commitment to swim at San Diego State University next fall. She plans to major in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Pre-Physical Therapy.
“I am extremely humbled and happy to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at San Diego State University. I can’t thank my family, friends, and coaches enough for their help throughout this entire process, and am so excited to spend the next 4 years with such an amazing group of girls! Go Aztecs.”
Tapley is a senior at Fairview High School in Boulder. She took 6th in both the 100 back (56.25) and 100 fly (57.15) at the 2018 Colorado Girls 5A State Championships; she also led off the 5th-place 200 medley relay (26.56 backstroke). Swimming for the North Jeffco Hurricanes, Tapley recently scored a trio of PBs at 2018 Winter Juniors West: 200 back (PB by over 3 seconds), 200 IM, and 400 IM. Last summer she won the 100 back and 400 IM at Rochester Futures. She also made A finals in the 200 fly and 200 back and picked up new PBs in both events. Her victory in the 400 IM (5:00.06) was more than a 9-second improvement off her best time, while her 200 back (2:18.58) was a Winter Nationals qualifier.
