The University of South Dakota picked up three quality verbal commitments last week. The women’s team heard from Maddie Gallagher and Morgan Dickinson, both Minnesota natives; the men’s team received a verbal from Iowa’s Seth Jones.
Madison (Maddie Gallagher)
A sprint freestyler from St. Michael, Minnesota, Gallagher swims for St. Michael Albertville High School and Sea Devils Swim Club. Her top 50 free and 100 free come from Iowa Sectionals during her sophomore year, although she repeated her 100 free PB on-the-button at high school section championships last November.
