Berkeley Christensen from Gillette Signs to Swim at Wyoming
Campbell County senior Berkeley Christensen will join the University of Wyoming swimming and diving team next fall.
Christensen signed her National Letter of Intent in a recent ceremony at the Campbell County Aquatics Center.
She’s one of the most decorated swimmers in state history and earned all-state honors all four years of her prep career.
Christensen won seven individual state championships over her four years of high school swimming. She won the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly races three times each. Christensen took home first in the 200 free in 2018, 2019, and 2020. She finished atop the podium in the 100 fly in 2018, 2019, and 2021. Her other individual win was at the 2021 state meet in the 200 individual medley.
The senior set a new state record with her victory in the butterfly race at this year’s state championship. Christensen touched the wall in 55.62 seconds. That surpassed the old mark of 56.01 from 2010.
She was also part of three state championship relays in her junior and senior seasons.
Christensen was named the Class 4A Athlete of the Meet at the 2021 state championships in Gillette.
She is projected as a freestyle and butterfly swimmer at the collegiate level.
