Rozhina McClanahan of SwimMAC Carolina has verbally committed to swim for the Wolfpack of North Carolina State University.
McClanahan’s best times include:
100 Breaststroke (SCY) – 1:04.46
100 Breaststroke (LCM) – 1:13.62
200 Breaststroke (SCY) – 2:21.18
200 Breaststroke (LCM) – 2:41.65
NC State’s top time in the 100 Breaststroke last year belonged to sophomore Kayla Brumbaum (1:01.35) followed by senior Lauren Poli (1:01.59). Junior Payton Schrum, also from SwimMAC Carolina, has the school’s 6th best overall 100 Breaststroke time: 1:03.87 in 2013. In the 200 Breaststroke, the top times from 2014 belong to now graduated Kelsey Liu (2:14.09), and Brumbaum (2:14.46).
McClanahan, a current senior at Charlotte Latin in Charlotte, North Carolina, has lowered her 100 Breaststroke time four seconds since 2012. She has also improved her 200 Breaststroke time by seven seconds in the same timeframe. With this continued improvement, she will likely continue to improve during her senior season at SwimMAC and when she joins the Wolfpack next year. Since the majority of the top NC State breaststrokers are upperclassmen, the team is in desperate need of breaststrokers. McClanahan has a great shot of becoming an immediate contributor for her future team.
