Women's Swimming And Diving Signs Two To National Letters Of Intent
April 18, 2001
Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford women's swimming and diving program has announced the signing of two student-athletes to national letters of intent to attend Stanford in 2001-2002. The two incoming swimmers are Evins Cameron (Nashville, TN/Harpeth HS) and Amy Wagner (Phoenix, AZ/Mountain Pointe HS).
Cameron is a 10-time high school All-American and currently ranks No. 1 in the 500 freestyle (4:49.76) and No. 20 in the 200 IM (2:04.28) on the 2000-01 National High School Top Times List. Cameron was Tennessee's state champion in both events in 2000-01 and also swam the first leg on her school's 400 freestyle relay team that broke the Tennessee State Meet record last season. In addition, she participated at the 2000 U.S. Olympic Trials last summer.
'Evins is a fast-rising distance swimmer with capabilities in the individual medley events,' said Stanford head women's swimming coach Richard Quick. 'Her 400 IM will plug a huge weakness on our team and she will provide excellent support in the 500 and 1650 freestyle events.'
Wagner ranks No. 5 in the 100 backstroke (55.31) and No. 9 in the 100 butterfly (55.85) on the 2000-01 National High School Top Times List. She is a three high-school All-American and won Arizona's state high school championship in both the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly last season. Wagner also participated at last summer's U.S. Olympic Trials.
'Amy has great potential and had an excellent senior season in high school,' said Quick. 'She is a versatile swimmer who can help us in a number of different events and makes our medley relays more solid.'
Stanford finished second at the 2001 NCAA Women's Swimming And Diving Championships and won six NCAA titles during the 1990's.
