Towson University, traditionally one of the strongest mid-major women’s swimming and diving programs, recently picked up three commitments. Sarah-Margaret Locke and Katie Larkin, both of Stingrays Swimming in Georgia, along with Megan Cowan of Arena Club Aquatics in Maryland all declared their intention to swim for Towson in the class of 2020.

Locke projects as a potential CAA point scorer for the Tigers in the 200 butterfly, and could find action in middle distance and IM:

  • 100 freestyle: 53.84
  • 200 freestyle: 1:53.85
  • 100 butterfly: 57.60
  • 200 butterfly: 2:07.63
  • 200 IM: 2:08.79

Likewise, her teammate Larkin would have been a 200 backstroke point scorer last year, while her LCM times indicate she has a lot of potential to improve:

  • 200 backstroke:  2:04.32
  • 100 backstroke: 58.68
  • 200 IM: 2:10.27
  • 200 Back LCM: 2:24.61
  • 100 Back LCM: 1:06.77

Larkin was a 10th place finisher at last year’s Georgia High School 1-5A Championships for Rome High School, while Locke finished 4th for Mount Paran Christian in the 100 fly.

Cowan is the best of the bunch, with potential to score right away in both butterfly and freestyle events, as well as swim on multiple relays:

  • 100 free: 52.72
  • 200 free: 1:51.72
  • 100 fly: 56.67
  • 200 fly: 2:02.70
  • 200 IM: 2:06.52

Cowan is a two-time Maryland Public School champion in both the 200 and 500 freestyle for C.Milton Wright.
