(NLI PHOTOS): Napa Valley Teammates Swanson and Murphy Sign Letters

Alex Swanson and Haley Murphy, teammates on the Napa Valley Swim Team both signed their National Letters of Intent last week.

Swanson will be an important sprint free/breaststroke piece for the University of Hawaii. In yards, her bests are 24.45 in the 50 yard free and 52.93 in the 100 yard free, plus a 1:05.28 in the 100 yard breaststroke.

She will come in and immediately push then-senior Natalie Garger for a spot on Hawaii’s top medley relays, though Garger is having a great junior year for the Wahine, so that spot won’t go easily in year one.

Murphy is committed to swim for Division II UC San Diego, where she will join a very good sprint group. In yards, her bests are 24.29/52.93 in the 50 and 100 yard freestyles. UCSD has a very young sprint group, but with those times Murphy could immediately become a part of their NCAA relays. The Tritons finished 3rd at the 2013 NCAA Division II National Championship meet.
