MILTON, Wisconsin, September 21. KENTUCKY head coach Lars Jorgensen picked up his first big commitment of the Class of 2014 in his first year at the helm of the Wildcats. This week, J-Hawk’s Bridgette Alexander made the call to become a future Wildcat.
Alexander, ranked 64th in the Class of 2014 by CollegeSwimming.com (http://www.collegeswimming.com/swimmer/152779/), will provide the Wildcats with some backstroke ability in a stocked Southeastern Conference.
Alexander’s top career time is a 1:02.53 in the 100-meter backstroke from the 2012 Speedo Junior National Championships. She also has a 1:57.20 in the 200-yard backstroke from the 2012 Wisconsin Lake Fall Western meet.
Alexander, the fourth-ranked prospect out of the state of Wisconsin, also has some swift lifetime bests in the 100-yard back and 200-meter backstroke events. She clocked a 2:15.17 in the 200-meter back at the 2012 Speedo Juniors, while also posting a 54.79 in the 100-yard back at the 2012 Wisconsin Senior State Championships.
“Great coaches, great swimmers, and a great program,” Alexander posted on her CollegeSwimming.com profile. “I love everything that UK has to offer not only for me as a swimmer but me as a student-athlete as well! Go Cats!”
