Alyssa Sorensen Switches Commitment from BYU to Utah for 2021


Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Magnolia Aquatic Club’s Alyssa Sorensen, who had originally committed to follow her siblings Ryan, Chad, and Allie to BYU, has switched her commitment to the University of Utah’s class of 2025.

“With lots of thought and consideration, I’m grateful for the opportunity to announce my verbal commitment to further my swimming and academic career at The University of Utah. Thank you to the Utah coaches and all the people who have been part of this crazy process. GO UTES❤️”

Sorensen will graduate this spring from The Woodlands High School, where she earned a 2021 Highlander Leadership Award. She was a contributor to the swim team’s 2021 UIL Texas 6A State Championship, competing in the 100 breast (7th, 1:05.31) and swimming breast (28.83) on the 5th-place 200 medley relay. She went a lifetime best in the 100 breast at Regionals, going 1:04.09 in the final.

Sorensen swims year-round with Magnolia Aquatic Club. Although she hasn’t had many opportunities to race in the last year, she has improved both her 100 breast and 100 fly times, as well as her 50/500 free times.

  • 100 breast – 1:04.09
  • 200 breast – 2:23.66
  • 200 IM – 2:10.02
  • 400 IM – 4:40.66
  • 100 fly – 58.28

Sorensen will suit up for the Utes with Anelise Hedges, Anna Brooker, Haily Payne, Krystal Lieu, Madison Story, Maile Andresen, Milla Ruthven, Molly Jacobson, Norah Hay, Sofia Carlson, and Sydney Rogness in the fall.
