CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, October 9. In one of the biggest commitments of the year, No. 5 recruit Nora McCullagh of SwimMAC has elected to compete at the University of Texas after her senior year at Charlotte Catholic High.

McCullagh, the top-ranked recruit in the State of North Carolina by, is a downright scary versatile option for head coach Carol Capitani.

McCullagh is an immediate point-scoring threat in a bunch of short course events, with some seriously fast times this past year.  She clocked a 49.07 in the 100-yard free, 1:46.22 in the 200-yard free, 53.59 in the 100-yard back and 4:10.33 in the 400-yard IM, all ranked in the 900s in power points.

McCullagh can also get after it in long course competition with a 25.72 in the 50-meter free and a 56.14 in the 100-meter free, now to mention a 2:01.45 in the 200-meter free.

McCullagh is also a National Age Group record holder in the 800-yard free relay as well as in the 200-yard medley relay, 400-yard medley relay, 200-yard free relay and 800-meter free relay as part of SwimMAC’s tremendous age group girls coached by David Marsh and Alan Pfau.

    If she went 59.07 for the 100 YARD free she must have done it as a 10-under.

    I suspect you meant 50.07 unless you meant 100 m free — but you said she was 56.1 there.
