Rising high school senior Noelle Marsh of the Magnolia Aquatic Club has verbally committed to Washington State University.

She attends Magnolia High School in Northwest Houston, where in February she finished 5th in both the 50 and 100 yard freestyles at the Texas 5A State Championship meet (for schools with enrollments of under 2,220 students).
Out of the pool, Marsh has served as an athlete representative for Gulf Swimming.
Best Times in Yards:
- 50 free – 23.59
- 100 free – 51.62
- 200 free – 1:53.42
Marsh is primarily a sprint freestyler, with the height to back that up. As an 8th grader at just 13-years old, she had already been 24.1 in the 50 yard free, which ranked her among the top 50 nationally that season at her age.
While she hasn’t seen huge drops in that 50 free in the 3 seasons since, she has consistently gotten faster each season. Her 100 free has likewise continued to show improvement, though she’s focused less-and-less on the 200 free as she’s gotten older.
Last season, it took a 23.01 on a flat-start to score in the 50 free at the Pac-12 Championships. All 4 members of Washington State’s 200 free relay split sub-23 en route to a 7th place finish in that race, and an 8th-place team finish at the meet.
Her best times in both the 50 and 100 yard freestyle are USA Swimming Futures cuts.
Out of the pool, Marsh has served as a Gulf Swimming athlete representative. Washington State only has one other swimmer on its roster (or committed) from Texas, and none from the Houston area, so this represents new recruiting grounds for the Cougars.
