Kate Hickey and Heather Farley, both of Visitation, a St. Paul, MN private high school, have signed with colleges for next season.
Hickey, who also swims for Minnetonka Swim Club, has signed with Division I Providence College in Rhode Island. She’s primarily a breaststroker, with a lifetime-best 1:07.23 in the 100 breast and a 2:31.14 in the 200.
Farley swims for Blackline Aquatics in addition to Visitation. She’s also a breaststroker, and has signed with Villanova. Her top times are 1:06.14 and 2:23.07, but she’s probably more highly-rated in long course, going 1:13.60 this past summer.
The two teammates will now get to compete against each other in the Big East Conference going forward.
