NEW COMMIT: UCLA has been forming an incredible recruiting class for the fall of 2022, and their latest verbal commitment comes from in-state standout Morganne Malloy of Ladera Ranch, Calif.

She will join Katrina Bellio, Rosie MurphyAva Lachey, Fay Lustria and Courtney Seljeseth as a member of the Bruins’ Class of 2026.

She told Swimming World:

“I am beyond excited to announce my commitment to continue my academics and swim career at UCLA!!! Thank you to my family for always supporting me, my coach for guiding me through this process, and my friends for all the amazing memories! Go Bruins!!! ???”

Malloy, who does her club swimming with Irvine Novaquatics under coach Adam Crossen, owns the Olympic Trials cut in both breaststroke events. At Juniors West last December, she dropped nearly three seconds in the 200 breast to finish fifth while also winning the B-final of the 100 breast.

In Summer 2019, she finished eighth in the 100m breast at Junior Nationals. Malloy also swept the breaststroke events at the Southern California 14&U Junior Olympic Championships in March 2019.

Her best times include:

  • 100 breast – 1:01.44
  • 200 breast – 2:13.70
  • 100m breast – 1:10.58
  • 200m breast – 2:32.89

Currently a junior at Capistrano Valley High School, Malloy placed sixth in the 100 breast at the CIF Southern DI Section Championships during her freshman season. She has also earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors.

Malloy will make a big impact when she suits up for the Bruins at the start of the 2022-23 season as she would’ve been their second-fastest 200 breaststroker and third-fastest 100 breaststroker last season. She would’ve scored in the B-final of both the 100 breast and 200 breast at the 2020 Pac-12 Championships where UCLA finished fourth overall in the team standings.
