PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State rounded out its swimming recruiting class with a pair of signees, head coach Rocco Aceto announced Tuesday.
The newest Cougars are Andree-Anne LeRoy (Le-ROY) and Tatiana (TOT-Tee-On-Uh) Maristany (MARE-i-stawn-EE).
LeRoy, from Nanaimo District Secondary School in Nanaimo, B.C., finished 10th in both the 100 backstroke and the 200 individual medley at the 2000 Canadian Olympic Trials.
"Andree-Anne is the most highly versatile swimmer ever to enter the Cougar swim program," Aceto said.
LeRoy's career best times entering WSU would rank her first all-time in the 200 and 400 IM, third in the 100 backstroke and 200 freestyle, fourth in the 100 freestyle, 100 fly and 400 IM, sixth in the 200 breaststroke and seventh in the 200 backstroke.
Maristany was a member of Irvine Nova Aquatics in California and trained with the Mexican national team. She graduated from Irvine High School last June.
"Because of her Mexican national team experience, it helps Wazzu recruit on the international level," Aceto said.
