Munson and Hjelle Commit to swim in College

Drew Munson from Olney has committed to swim at Towson University.

“I chose Towson because of how welcoming the team and coaching staff were. I am excited to learn and improve in the classroom and in the pool. Can’t wait to be a tiger!!”

Munson swims year-round for Rockville Montgomery Swim Club. In both high school and club swimming he focuses on the longer end of the freestyle range, and yet when called upon, he swims sprints. At the 2018 Washington Metropolitan Prep School Swim Dive League Championships in February, Munson competed in the 50/100 free events for Good Counsel. The next week at Metros he swam the 200 free (1:43.89 for 11th) and 500 free (4:39.59 for 5th), both lifetime bests.

Erica Hjelle from KSAC will be a Georgetown Hoya!

Hjelle does her club swimming with Rockville Montgomery Swim Club and has achieved the Winter Juniors standard in her signature event, the 200 breast. She recorded four lifetime bests and made one finals appearance at NCSAs this past summer after notching a trio of personal bests at NCSA Championships in March.

Hjelle is a six-time MPSSAA 4A State Championship finalist representing Sherwood High School. As a junior, she was the 100 breast runner-up and placed third in the 200 IM. She finished fourth in both events as a sophomore and took seventh in the 100 breast during her rookie campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so happy to say that I will continue my academic and swimming career at Georgetown University next year.  I can’t wait to attend such a  phenomenal school and join the amazing team of student athletes.  I could not have done it without the support of my awesome coaches, family, teammates, and friends.  Huge thank you to Coach Leavitt and the rest of the Georgetown Swim and Dive staff for making this possible.  Hoya Saxa!”
