Athens, GA - Instate prospects Olivia Boggs, Sommers Creed and Courtney Peters have signed national letters of intent with Georgia, head coach Jack Bauerle announced on Monday.
Boggs of Smyrna, Creed of Braselton and Peters of Acworth will join the Lady Bulldogs for the 2011-12 season.
Boggs attends Woodward Academy and swims for Doug Gjertsen with Swim Atlanta. She is considered one of the top five prospects in the state. Boggs was the 2010 Georgia Long Course champion in the 100 and 200 breaststroke and was the runner-up in the 100 freestyle. A two-time Academic All-American, Boggs has qualified for the United States National Championships in the 100 and 200 breaststroke.
“Olivia is one of the most improved prospects in the state,” Bauerle said. “If she continues to work her senior year the way she did her junior year, she could have an immediate impact on our team as a freshman in both breaststroke events and on relays.”
Creed attends Mill Creek High School and swims for Coach Chris Davis at Swim Atlanta. Creed is the state’s top distance prospect. She has earned All-America honors in the 200 and 500 freestyle and is a two-time state champion in the 500 freestyle.
“Sommers has been on our list for a long time,” Bauerle said. “She has been one of the top distance swimmers in our state for awhile. We’ve been patiently waiting to add her to our distance group. We’re anxious to have her join the team next year.”
Peters attends North Paulding High School and swims for Yit Lim with the Marietta Marlins. Peters has qualified for the Olympic Trials in the 200 butterfly. She is considered one of the state’s top five prospects.
“Courtney has been attending our swim camps for as long as I can remember,” Bauerle said. “We’ve known her since elementary school. To see her grow and improve and reach the level necessary to become a Bulldog is exciting for the whole staff. She has a great passion for our sport and is a great competitor.”
