Senior Salisbury High School Swimming star Kathryn Morrison signed her Letter of Intent to swim with the East Carolina Pirates this afternoon. Morrison is the defending NCHSAA State Champion in the 100m Backstroke, and finished third in the 100m Butterfly.
Morrison has numerous awards and accomplishments in her time as the top swimmer for the Hornets. She has been named Rowan County Swimmer of the Year for three consecutive years, CCC Conference Swimmer of the Year for the last two seasons, named to both All-County and All-Conference teams three years in a row. Morrison also received national acclaim for her swimming and academic talents, being named a 2016 USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and a 2016 High School All-American.
Morrison is quite proud of her career at Salisbury High School. “As a [high school] team, we have won conference and county meet championships for the past three years, which I have no doubt we will make that four this year. I am so proud and honored to be a Hornet and can’t wait to see how we finish out this year!”
Morrison will attend East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and study nursing or business. Morrison is joined in the photo by her parents Tammy and Martin Morrison.
