After originally announcing her verbal commitment to Kentucky in February , Clarkston, Michigan’s Sydney Stricklin has switched her allegiance to Liberty University. Stricklin swims for Club Wolverine and is an Olympic Trials qualifier in the 50 free and a Winter Juniors or better qualifier in the 100/200 free, 100/200 back, and 200/400 IM. Last summer, she finished top 30 in the 100 free (57.34) and 200 free (2:04.54) at the 2019 Speedo Junior National Championships and was even faster leading off Club Wolverine relays (56.98/2:03.31). Both times were personal bests.
