NEW COMMIT: Las Vegas’ Charlotte Brereton has verbally committed to swim for Grand Valley State University beginning in the fall of 2018.

Brereton is a senior at Shadow Ridge High School and does her club swimming with the Sandpipers of Nevada. At the 2017 Nevada High School swimming state championships Brereton was a finalist in the 500 freestyle, touching fifth. She was also sixth at the Sunset Regional Championship in the 100 fly. She is also a Sectionals finalist and a Senior Zone finalist in the 200 fly and 400 IM.

Her top times include:

  • 200 Free 1:58.93
  • 500 Free 5:07.43
  • 1650 Free: 17:58.97
  • 100 Fly: 1:01.20
  • 200 Fly: 2:11.51
  • 400 IM: 4:40.30

Brereton said of her decision,

“I chose Grand Valley because it is an all around great school. Grand Valley is both academically and athletically strong. I can’t wait to be part of the team and swim with my sister. Go Lakers!”

Brereton’s sister Caroline is a junior at the school this year. Primarily a distance freestyler, Caroline is a multiple time GLIAC finalist, with times just quicker than her younger sister’s. The two will have a year to train together.

Other Sandpipers seniors committed to continue swimming for college programs include Grace Siebmann, Erica Sullivan, and Allie Emery.
