NEW COMMIT: Oceanside, N.Y. native and current high school junior Morgan Rinn has verbally committed to Penn State as a member of the class of 2024 and will join Lizzie Danforth and Mary Brinker in State College next fall.

Rinn does her club swimming with Long Island Express and owns the U.S. Open cut in the 100m fly with a pair of additional Summer Juniors standards. She earned gold in the 200 fly at Ithaca Speedo Sectionals after finishing 10th in that event at NCSAs. Rinn flew to 21st in the 200m fly at Winter Nationals this past winter and won both fly events at Eastern Zones Seniors last summer.

Also competing for Oceanside Senior High School, Rinn is a six-time New York Federation Championship finalist. She finished fourth in both the 100 fly and 200 IM as a junior after taking seventh and 12th, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season.

She told Swimming World:

“So beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at Penn State University! I would like to thank my parents, coaches, and teammates for their unconditional support throughout this process. Can’t wait to be a Nittany Lion!! #WeAre”

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 55.11
  • 200 fly – 1:58.36
  • 200 IM – 2:04.82
  • 400 IM – 4:22.78

Rinn will add valuable depth to the Nittany Lions’ lineup when she arrives on campus at the start of the 2020-21 season following the graduation of top returning flyer Maddie Hart. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 200 fly at the 2019 Big Ten Championships.
