University of Toledo Pulls In Verbal Commit from Emma Sampson

London, Ohio-based Emma Sampson has verbally committed to swim for the University of Toledo in the fall. Sampson is a senior at Madison-Plains High School and she swims year-round for Springfield Family YMCA.

“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Toledo! UT is a great fit for me academically and athletically.  Jonas, Milana and the girls have amazing goals in the classroom and the pools that I want to be a part of. I can’t wait to be a part of this team and change in Toledo!”

Sampson swims 100 back and 200 IM for Madison-Plains. She finished 18th and 12th in those events as a freshman at the Ohio state meet, then 16th and 20th the following year and 19th and 20th as a junior. She competed in the 100 back at YMCA National Championships, both in the short course meet last spring, and the long course meet this past summer. Sampson swam the 100/200 back and 200/400 IM at 2015 YMCA Short Course Nationals.

Her top events include:

50 back 27.91 31.59
