SoCal’s Alexandra Skorus-Neely Gives Verbal Commitment to Cal

Alexandra Skorus-Neely of Canyon Country, California, has made a verbal commitment, via her Twitter account, to swim for the University of California, Berkeley next year.

Skorus-Neely is a senior at Canyon High School, where she specializes in IM and breaststroke. She placed second in the 200 IM (2:00.38) and third in the 100 breast (1:02.81) at the 2016 CIF-Southern Section Division I Championships in May. She also split a 28.97 breaststroke on Canyon’s medley relay, which finished 17th.

Skorus-Neely swims year-round at Canyons Aquatic Club. She wrapped up her long course season at Stanford Futures this summer, where she competed in the 50/100m free, 100/200m breast, 100m fly, and 200m IM. Her best SCY times are:

  • 100 breast – 1:02.81
  • 200 breast – 2:17.78
  • 200 IM – 2:00.38
  • 100 free – 51.19
  • 100 fly – 56.61

Skorus-Neely will join Canyons teammate Abbey Weitzeil at Cal; Weitzeil just began her freshman year this fall after having taken a red shirt year to prepare for the Rio Olympics. In addition, she will join Ali Harrison and Dannie Dilsaver in Berkeley’s class of 2021
