LAS CRUCES, N.M. (April 26)-New Mexico State swimming and diving head coach Rick Pratt has signed Kaitlyn Hogan to a National Letter of Intent. Hogan, a freestyle and backstroke specialist from Southlake, Texas, joins Kara Schweitzer, Victoria Palombit, Jessica Legge and Aliena Schmidtke in the 2011 Class.
“We are thrilled to have signed Kaitlyn Hogan in the late signing period,” Pratt said. “With our very strong fall signees we only need to fill a couple holes, and Kaitlyn will do that for us.”
Hogan swims for coach Bill Christensen and the North Texas Nadadores. Her personal best times include 24.90 in the 50 free, 53.02 in the 100 free, 1:53.17 in the 200 free, 5:05.78 in the 500 free, 58.91 in the 100 back and 2:06.69 in the 200 back.
“She is a hard-working individual with strong leadership qualities and someone who our team really enjoyed getting to know during her visit,” he said. “She’s been improving well especially this past spring and has good potential in both freestyle and backstroke events. I am very excited to coach her and when adding her to the list with our other four recruits already committed, this will not be the largest freshmen class to come to
