Katelyn Yule, who hails from Folsom, California, has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee for 2020-21.
“I am beyond honored to say I’ve verbally committed to the University of Tennessee! They have such an outstanding program and phenomenal coaches, I fell in love the moment I stepped on the pool deck. My favorite thing about the team would be the energy they bring to every meet, I feel like it’s really easy to swim fast when you’re having fun and cheering on your teammates. I am proud to be considered a lady vol and I can’t wait to swim for coach Matt and coach Ashley.”
Yule is a junior at Folsom High School; she swims year-round for Sierra Marlins Swim Team.
