Roseville's Jorgensen signs to swim for Boise State

Boise State swimming and diving coach Kristin Hill announced today that Roseville High's Whitney Jorgensen has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Broncos.

"When I arrived at Boise State, I knew immediately this was the school and team for me," Jorgensen said of her earlier recruiting trip. "Boise State exceeded my expectations in a school and swim team. I felt like I was already part of the team."

Under Roseville coaches Kelly Capell and Emily Dodds, Jorgensen earned All-America recognition in the 200-yard individual medley and is a three-time all-league honoree in four different events.

The senior is the Sierra Foothill League record holder in the 100-yard breaststroke, bettering the mark each of her first three seasons. Jorgensen is the school record holder in the 200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke and 100-yard butterfly.

At the 2012 Sac-Joaquin Section championships, Jorgensen advanced to two finals. She took sixth in the 100 butterfly and eighth in the 200 individual medley.

Jorgensen is coached by Jeff Pearson, Brad Robins and Adam Schmitt of the Sierra Marlins Swim Team, where she has qualified for senior and junior nationals. She finished fifth at the 2011 Winter California-Nevada Sectional in the 400-yard individual medley with a career-best 4 minutes, 22.12 seconds.

Jorgensen's brother, Adam, swims at Cal, where he is a sophomore.
