Skylar Brgoch from Aurora, Colorado has verbally committed to swim at Washington State University. Brgoch specializes in the sprint freestyle and butterfly events.
“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic journey at Washington State University!! I look forward to being part of an incredible swim family and am very thankful for the opportunity to swim for such an amazing program under the leadership of Coach Leach! Thank you to my family, friends, teammates and coaches for supporting me! GO COUGS!!!”
Brgoch is a rising senior at Cherokee Trail High School in Aurora, Colorado. She currently holds 5 team records and 3 pool records at CTHS. She also swims year-round with Aces Swim Club out of Centennial, Colorado. Her best times in SCY are:
At the 2021 Colorado (CHSAA) Girls 5A State Championships, she finished 9th overall in the 100-yard butterfly while setting a new personal best (55.92). Two weeks later, she traveled to Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin and dropped a 55.65. For reference, Brgoch’s best time in this event in 2020 was a 58.37.
This isn’t the only event that Brgoch has improved in during the past year. Here’s a look at some events that she’s had significant time drops in:
|50 freestyle (SCY)||25.99||24.59|
|50 freestyle (LCM)||29.12||27.53|
|100 freestyle (SCY)||54.75||53.16|

Based on Brgoch’s 100-yard butterfly best time, she would’ve scored points in the B-Final at last season’s PAC-12 Conference Championships. The Cougar Women finished 7th overall at the 2021 Pac-12 Championships.
Brgoch recently swam at the Western Zone Senior Championships (LCM) and dropped personal best times in the 50 freestyle (27.53), 100 freestyle (59.78), 400 freestyle (4:42.90), 50 butterfly (29.76), and 100 butterfly (1:03.56).
