El Dorado High’s Haley Owens and Ponderosa’s Samantha Woo of the Aquasol Swim Team have signed their National Letter of Intent forms to attend and swim next year at the collegiate level.

Owens signed with Georgetown University while Woo signed with Fresno Pacific University.

Owens has swam with Aquasol for her entire year-around swim career and has a long list of highlights in both USA Swimming and prep swimming. For USA Swimming, Owens achieved a Junior National bonus standard in the 100 meter breaststroke and was named to the 2010 Sierra Nevada Western Zone Team, qualified for and competed in the 2010-12 sectional championships — making the finals in the 100 meter breaststroke at the 2012 meet, and took 1st place and set the Sierra Nevada record for the 200 meter breaststroke at the SN Junior Olympics Championships in 2011.

Haley competed for El Dorado from 2011-13. In 2011, she was the girls Freshman of the Year and at the CIF section meet placed 3rd in the 100 breaststroke and 12th in the 200 Individual Medley. In 2012 she placed 2nd in the 100 breaststroke and 7th in the 200 IM for the Frosh/Soph division.

In 2011-2012 she was honored as a Scholastic All-American, achieving a 4.17 GPA. Owens plans to study Biology/Pre-Medicine at Georgetown.

Woo started swimming with Sierra at the age of seven and began swimming with Aquasol in June of 2013. For Sierra, she was recognized as the Most Improved Swimmer (2005) and the Marlins’ Swimmer of the Year (2011). She has qualified for and attended the Speedo Gold Sectional Championships in multiple events.

Though an injury sidelined Woo for 2012, she was a section finalist for Ponderosa in both 2011 and 20013 and is currently the school record holder in the 50 freestyle and 100 free.

At Fresno Pacific University, Woo is considering studying English and/or Criminology.
