NEW COMMIT: The first public verbal commitment for the Class of 2028 on the women’s side belongs to Army West Point after Hadley King of Oologah, Oklahoma, announced her pledge to the Black Knights.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am honored to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at the United States Military Academy! I would like to thank all my family, coaches, and teammates who have helped me get this far! Thank you to the Army Swim and Dive staff for giving me this amazing opportunity!!!! 🇺🇸❤️ #GOARMY #BEATNAVY”

King trains year-round with Splash Club and spent the summer with Southwest Stars Swim Club in Florida. She earned four best times at the Florida LCM Championships this past summer where she finished second in the 50m free, fourth in both the 100m free and 200m IM, and sixth in the 200m free.

Back in March, she grabbed gold in the 200 IM at Oklahoma Seniors, also claiming silver in the 50/100/200 fly.

Her best times include:

  • 50 fly – 25.57
  • 100 fly – 58.27
  • 200 fly – 2:13.51
  • 50 free – 23.95
  • 100 free – 53.66
  • 200 free – 1:58.71
  • 200 IM – 2:11.02

King is currently a junior at Bartlesville High School, but she and her family are set to move to Thailand next month.

King is a great pickup for Army and will add valuable depth across multiple events. By the time she arrives on campus, she’ll join a training group that includes Meghan ColeClara Williams and Maggie Kroening, all whom scored in the fly events at the 2022 Patriot League Championships.
