Fresno State Recruiting Close to Home for 2018

The Fresno State Women’s Swim Team did not have to go far to find swimmers for its 2018 roster. The squad has already picked up four athletes from within the borders of California. The latest to commit with the Lady Bulldogs is Linda Cho from Brea. In her three years swimming for Olinda High School, Cho qualified for the CIF-Southern Section Division II Championships every year. Her events include the 100 fly, 100 back, 200 free, and 200 IM. Outside of high school, Cho swims year-round for Brea Aquatics, and achieved a personal best over the summer in the LCM 200 fly.

Along with Cho, Fresno State’s other California committals are Elizabeth Wenner, Jannae Torres, and Mackenzie Ayala. Wenner comes from Ripon High School, where she finished 15th in the 50 free with a time of 24.84 and 13th in the 100 free with a time of 54.89 at this year’s CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Championships. Torres, from James Logan High School in Union City, is a two-time 100 breast champion in the Mission Valley Athletic League. Ayala won the Capital Valley Conference Championship in both the 100 free and 200 free for Antelope High School in 2016, and was the team MVP in 2015 and 2016. Your text to link…
