A talented freestyler, Roghair swims year-round with Iowa Flyers Swim Club and is a U.S. Open qualifier. She finished fourth in the 500 free, eighth in the 200 free, and ninth in the mile at Juniors West in December.

Last summer, she won the 200m free and 1500m free at Des Moines Futures where she also took fourth in the 800m free. She then went on to finish 14th in the 400m free at Junior Nationals.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 24.43
  • 100 free – 50.95
  • 200 free – 1:48.40
  • 500 free – 4:47.41
  • 1650 free – 16:35.60
  • 100 back – 57.17
  • 200 back – 2:00.84

Iowa City West High School, Roghair is a four-time Iowa State Championship finalist. The two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American won both the 200 free and 500 free as a junior while taking third and second, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season.

Roghair will add her talents to a training group that will include Morgan Tankersley as well as future classmate Tadder. She would’ve placed in the C-final of the 500 free as well as scored in the top-14 of the mile at the 2020 Pac-12 Championships where, under head coach Greg Meehan, Stanford is coming off its fourth-straight conference title and the team is the three-time defending National Champion.
