Two TNT swimers are completing their senior year of high school, and are preparing to make the transition to collegiate swimming. Early signing for the sport of swimming occurs in November, and Selma’s Morgan Coddington has signed the National Letter of Intent to represent the Fresno Pacific Sunbirds for the following year. Morgan is a graduating senior from Kingsburg High School, and is coached by Gary Ota.
Joining Morgan will be Visalia’s graduating senior, Lauren Geiger, who will be graduating from Immanuel High School in Reedley. Lauren gave her verbal committment to Fresno Pacific earlier in the year be come a Sunbird next year, and she is coahced by Jason Ricablanca. Early signing is offered only to those athletes across sports that are highly desired by the college of their choice, and our two athletes are no exception to that reality. Both Morgan and Lauren have consistently finished in the top 2 places at the CIF High School Valley Championships year after year, and both swimmers qualify for our team’s senior circuit of swim meets that include the Los Angeles Invitational, Speedo Grand Challenge, and Swim Meet of Champions, swim meets that typically field international level Olympians.
Our two athletes will be following a long list of TNT swimmers who competed for Fresno Pacific, including Bre Abell, Thomas Brown, Wesley Coles, Justin Lopez-Lamb, Matlyn Morris, Jordan Stotts, as well as our coaches Alicia Cleveland, Kendall Swanson and Joclyn Thiessen.
Fresno Pacific is an NCAA Division 2 program that competes in the Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference along with the University of Alaska, Arizona Christian University, Azusa Pacific, Biola, East Bay, Concordia, Dixie State College, Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, Soka University, UC San Diego, and UC Santa Cruz.
