High school senior freestyler Sammy Saul has verbally committed to the Hiram College Terriers of Hiram, Ohio for next season.
A senior at Catalina Foothills High School in Tuscon, Arizona, Saul was named to the Arizona Daily Star Swimming All-Star list last winter, and competes for Oro Valley Swimming.
Saul is a huge pickup for Division III Hiram College, which competes in the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC). Her 50 and 100 freestyle times would have been the fastest on Hiram’s squad last season, both by large margins.
She also would have been the program’s fastest 100 backstroker.
Saul’s Top Times
- 50 free: 25.84
- 100 free: 56.31
- 200 free: 2:16.50
- 100 back: 1:09.29
That should make Saul an instant relay factor for the Terriers, who will look to improve on a 9th-place finish at last year’s NCAC Championships. She should be a stalwart on both the 200 free relay and 400 free relay, and could also be a medley relay contributor swimming back or free, or could factor in on the 800 free relay, as her lifetime-best 200 free would have placed her 4th on the team last season.
Saul graduates this spring, and will join Hiram’s program beginning next fall.
