Boise State Swimming And Diving Signs Allyson Kleinsorgen
June 2, 2015

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State swimming and diving head coach Kristin Hill announced Tuesday the signing of Allyson Kleinsorgen (Succasunna, N.J./Roxbury HS) to a financial aid agreement.

Kleinsorgen will begin classes at Boise State for the fall 2015 semester and will make her collegiate swimming debut for the Broncos in the 2015-16 campaign. She joins an incoming-freshman class that includes seven prep swimmers and one diver signed by the Broncos in November: Mandy Barnes (Trabuco Canyon, Calif./Tesoro HS), Anne Boodt (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman HS), Cassidy Bose (Mt. Pleasant, Wis./J.I. Case HS), Cody Evans (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada/Collège Vincent Massey Collegiate), Dakota Isaak (Juneau, Alaska/Juneau-Douglas HS), Mik Ranslem (Saugus, Calif./William S. Hart HS), Abbey Sorenson (Draper, Utah/Riverton HS) and Laura Williams (Covington, Wash./Kentlake HS).

"Ally is really the completion of this class who we were hoping for," Hill said. "In November we signed seven swimmers and a diver who cab all make an impact on our program. Ally adds strength and balance to our backstroke and sprint freestyle groups, but she is also a very well-rounded swimmer who had significant time drops over the last year. Ally fit well within our team dynamic and she also brings a lot of strength academically which is an important part of our program. We are excited to work with her over the next four years."

Kleinsorgen had signed a National Letter of Intent in November to attend and compete with Western Kentucky, but in April the university announced it was suspending its swimming program for five years following police and Title IX investigations due to violations of the student code of conduct's discrimination and harassment policy in addition to its sexual misconduct/assault policy. Concurrent with that decision, swimmers that had signed with Western Kentucky were allowed the option of release from their commitment.

Finishing her prep career at Roxbury High School this past spring, Kleinsorgen captured a pair of gold medals at the Morris County Championships for the second-straight season en route to being named the 2014-15 Daily Record (N.J.) Swimmer of the Year. At the meet in March, she successfully defended her titles in the 50 free (area-best time of 23.87) and 100 back, and took home silver medals as part of Roxbury's 200 free and 200 medley relay teams.

At the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) Meet of Champions she finished fifth in the 100 back (57.22) and sixth in the 50 free (24.04).

She is also the owner of six individual and three relay records at Roxbury, and is a five-year YMCA National Team member. She holds qualifying times in five events as a YMCA National Team member, and at the 2015 New Jersey Meet of Champions finished in the Top 40 in seven events with a top finish of 14th in the 100 back (55.76).
