FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The Colorado State Rams have added swimmer Tove Törnström for the 2012 spring season, Head Coach Christopher Woodard announced Monday.
Törnström hails from Linköping, Sweden, where she attends school at Folkuniversitetet, Internationella Gymnasiet. In Sweden, athletes don't swim for their high schools, but compete for local swim clubs, and she has helped LASS (Linköpings Allmänna Simsällskap) win her country's national title three consecutive seasons (2007-09).
Törnström has regularly reached the finals of the Swedish Nationals and Swedish Junior Nationals. She also has won several bronze, silver and gold medals in her regional championships.
Törnström will join the 2012 season in the spring to be joined in the fall by fellow recruits Erica Stock, Bailey Williamson, Felicia Gilson, Ariana Milone and Paige Greely.
“We are very pleased to have Tove finally on our squad for the next four years,” Woodard said. “Adding an athlete of Tove’s caliber is a huge coup for us. Her determination and character outmatch her considerable talent. Tove will help us greatly in shoring up the middle of our lineup with her ability to swim free and butterfly.”
