Binghamton women's swimming & diving inks a pair during early signing period
VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton women's swimming and diving program has announced the signing of two high school standouts to National Letters of Intent. The pair of student-athletes, Lyndsi Worthington (Leawood, Kan./Blue Valley North) and Nicole Sheridan (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City)will begin their freshman seasons with the Bearcats next fall.
"I am thrilled to bring in these two young women," said head coach Sean Clark. "It says that the swimmers that are here have created a team and environment that quality swimmers want to be a part of. We are looking to build a team full of swimmers with the capability to score points in multiple events at the America East Championship meet. That is the measure of how the team really stands. Both Nicole and Lyndsi will definitely be a big part of that."
Worthington joins the Bearcats from Leawood, Kan., and currently swims for Blue Valley North High School and the nationally reknowned Kansas City Blazers Swim Club. The reigning Kansas state champion in the 100 back, she has helped her Blue Valley North team to a pair of consecutive state championships. Additionally, she has swam for two years with a Blazers program that has produced a number of olympians and that is headed by Peter Malone, who has been recognized among USA Swimming's Top 25 Most Influential People in the History of Swimming.
Worthington is expected to have an immediate impact on both the team's dual meet strength and championship point scoring abilities.
"I am really excited about Lyndsi's decision to embark on her college career here at Binghamton," said Clark. "She has just begun to blossom as a swimmer. She is excited about the sport, she is excited about the educational opportunities at BU and she fits in really well with our team."
Sheridan comes to Binghamton from Garden City High School on Long Island where she was All-Nassau County in both the 100 breast and 200 IM and also as a member of the 200 free and medley relay teams. Sheridan is a very strong IM swimmer, who also figures to contribute in both distance freestyle and breaststroke events for the Bearcats.
"Nicole will bring tremendous versatility to our program," said Clark. "She will come in as a multiple event threat for scoring points at the conference meet and thats what I want on my team. For a coach to have a swimmer that can do multiple events successfully is unbelievable."
The Binghamton men's and women's swimming and diving teams have wrapped up their slate of competition for the fall semester and will return to action on January 13, when they head to Drexel for a 2 p.m. dual meet.
