Mountain Vista senior Sydnie Saddoris Signs with Sioux Falls

Sydnie Saddoris, a senior at Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, has signed a National Letter of Intent to swim at University of Sioux Falls beginning next fall. Saddoris, who is not currently attached to a club team, swims for Mountain Vista Swimming and Diving team under head coach Rob Nasser. She is a 6’2” sprinter and her top times include:

  • 50 Free – 24.98
  • 100 Free – 54.58
  • 200 Free – 1:58.94

The University of Sioux Falls (USF) just completed its inaugural 2016-17 season. It was one of three Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) schools to add women’s swimming for the 2016-17 year. (The University of Mary and Augustana College were the other two). This was hugely significant because NCAA Division II rules require that, to be recognized as a conference sport, six teams must be competing. The NSIC, therefore, began officially sponsoring women’s swimming and diving with the 2016-2017 season.

To top off its inaugural season, the NSIC had an NCAA national champion when Northern State’s Hannah Kastigar won the 400 IM at NCAA Division II Nationals.
