Brooke Matthias, a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Ashburn, Virginia, has verbally committed to swim at Penn State University in the fall of 2018.
“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Penn State! I want to thank all my coaches, friends, and family for helping get this far. I’m excited to get an amazing education as well as be apart [sic] of a swim program with great people and coaching staff. WE ARE!! #priderising #blueprint”
As a junior at Stone Bridge High School at the 2017 VHSL 5A State Meet, Matthias placed third in both the 100 fly (54.50) and 100 back (56.18), and led off the Stone Bridge medley relay (26.54) and 400 free relay 53.26). As a sophomore she had been runner-up in the fly and fourth in the back. She achieved NISCA High School All-American status for the butterfly both years.
Matthias swims year-round for Nation’s Capital Swim Club. She was a finalist in the 100/200 butterfly events at the NCSA Spring Championship in March (21st in the 50y fly, 7th in the 100y fly, and 24th in the 200y fly), and in the recent NCSA Summer Championship in Indianapolis (8th in the 100m fly, 18th in the 200m fly).
