Women's Swimming Inks Three For 2013-14

EMMITSBURG, Md. – Mount St. Mary's University women's swimming head coach Neil Yost has announced the signings of Allison Baker (Toms River, N.J./Toms River), Amanda Moore (Katy, Texas/Cinco Ranch) and Hailey Vogt (Paramus, N.J./Immaculate Heart Academy) to National Letters of Intent. The trio will enroll at the Mount in the fall of 2013.

"All of the November signings have a few things in common," said Yost. "They all come from strong club and high school programs that have not only instilled a high level of swimming but also a culture of success and dedication.  All three are will not only have an impact in their primary events, but are also diverse enough to perform well in their secondary events."

Baker is a four-year letterwinner on the girl's swimming team at Toms River High School. A team captain in her senior year, Baker has been a Meet of Champions qualifier in her first three seasons and was named to the All-Shore first team in her freshman and sophomore campaigns. Baker won the county championship in the 500 free as a junior and helped her team to the county title in 2009 and 2010.

"Allison will have an opportunity to impact the team in every freestyle event, from the 50 all the way through the mile," said Yost.

Moore is a four-year letterwinner from the Cinco Ranch girl's swimming team in Texas. A team captain as a senior, Moore has named an All-American along with earning spots on the All-State, All-Region and All-District teams in her high school career. She helped her team to the district title in her first three seasons and to the regional crown last year.

"Amanda is a strong swimmer across multiple events and distances," said Yost. "Another strong freestyler that will also have the opportunity to continue The Mount's strong showing in the fly events at the conference level."

Vogt is a four-year letterwinner from the Immaculate Heart Academy girl's swimming team in New Jersey. A team captain in her senior campaign, Vogt nabbed All-League and All-County honors in each of her first three seasons. She has also contributed to the team that has won the league, county and state championships in her tenure.

 

"Hailey is going to come to us with a combination of events that I really like; Middle distance free and fly," said Yost. "She should immediately give us the depth in those events that is missing since the loss of Patricia Yam."
