Hoosiers Score Verbal from NJ Distance Freestyler Maggie Wallace

Maggie Wallace, who hails from Ocean City, New Jersey, has indicated her verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University beginning in the fall of 2018. Wallace is a rising senior at Ocean City High School and was a two-time finalist at the 2017 New Jersey Meet of Champions; she placed second (by .09) in the 500 free (4:48.21) and fourth in the 200 free (1:50.26).

Outside of high school, Wallace swims for the Egg Harbor Township Seahawks. She finished sixth in the 1650 at 2016 Winter Junior Nationals, and won the 500, 1000, and 1650 yard events at Eastern Zone Sectionals in Chambersburg at the end of March. She also competed in the 10k at the 2017 USA Swimming Open Water Nationals, coming in 16th overall (the 8th American) and fourth in the 18-and-under age category. That led to an opportunity to represent Team USA at the 2017 UANA Pan American Open Water Swimming Championships in the Cayman Islands, where she placed seventh.
