Sierra Marlins Sprinter Summer Spradley Makes Verbal Commitment to LSU Tigers

Granite Bay High School senior Summer Spradley has made a verbal commitment to the Louisiana State University Tigers for the 2015-16 season. Spradley is a two-time CIF-Sac Joaquin Section finalist in the 100 free, and a three-time finalist in the 50 free. She was runner-up in both events as a junior, with 52.01 and 23.87, respectively.

Spradley is a member of Sierra Marlins Swim Team. Her top short course times over the last two seasons are:

50y free: 23.85
100y free: 52.01
200y free: 1:55.22
100y fly: 57.52
100y breast: 1:06.29
200y IM: 2:11.07

Spradley has a lot of versatility but does best in the sprint free events. The SEC is about as fast a conference as there is, and while Spradley’s times aren’t quite scorable yet, LSU has a young group of freestlylers who should make for excellent training partners.

Spradley will have at least one familiar face in Baton Rouge: former Sierra Marlins and Granite Bay High School teammate Sophie Weber will be a senior when Spradley arrives.
