Sydney Metzler, a rising senior at Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colorado, has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Wyoming for 2021-22. She wrote on social media:
“The vibes are good in this post… I am beyond ecstatic and honored to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Wyoming!! 🤠 I can’t wait to be part of such a wonderful family!! Blessed, grateful, and happy barely scratch the surface of how I am feeling. I want to thank the coaches at the University of Wyoming for providing me with such an amazing opportunity. I also want to thank my family, teammates, and coaches who have helped me grow as a person in and out of the water. I can not wait to be a cowgirl!! Go Pokes!!💛🤎💛🤎”
A fly/back specialist, Metzler placed 9th in the 100 back and 10th in the 100 fly at the 2020 Colorado 5A High School State Championships. In club swimming, where she represents Elevation Athletics, she competed at last summer’s Mount Hood Sectionals in the 100/200 back, 100/200 fly, and 200 IM. She finaled in the 100 back (21st), 200 back (16th), and 200 fly (24th), and earned a PB in the 200 back. She also swam at PSS Clovis and finaled in the 200 back, 200 fly, and 400 IM.
In December 2018, Metzler competed in the 100 back and 200 back at Winter Juniors West. This past December, she swam at the Colorado Swimming Pioneer Open and placed 3rd in the 100 back and 200 back and 6th in the 200 fly and 200 IM.
Top SCY times:
- 50 back – 26.39
- 100 back – 56.31
- 200 back – 2:01.27
- 100 fly – 57.14
- 200 fly – 2:02.87
Metzler’s best backstroke times would have landed her in the top 3 on the Cowgirls’ roster last season for both the 100 and 200 distances. She will overlap two years with Emily Giles (54.71/1:57.67) and one with Molly Green (57.20/2:11.35).
