One of the top girls swimming athletes in the state has decided to take her talents to another state beginning next fall.
Omaha Burke senior Elizabeth Richardson announced her commitment to Iowa State via Twitter yesterday.

The Bulldog finished second at the state meet last winter in the 100 backstroke with a time of 56.94 and also was second in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:07.12.
Richardson has one of the top 100 backstroke times in state history. She also made a recruiting visit to the University of Nebraska earlier this fall.
