SPRING GROVE- Hali Flickinger, a Spring Grove graduate, is a freshman with the University of Georgia women's swim team.

In a recent 187-113 victory over Arkansas, she won the 200 butterfly and the 400 individual medley.

Her times, 1:57.92 in the 200 fly and 4:15.03 in the 400 IM, were NCAA B qualifying times.

She also competes in the 100 fly, 200 IM, 100 and 200 breaststroke and the 200 backstroke for the 5-0 Lady Bulldogs, who are ranked second in the nation.

"Hali has done a great job," Coach Jack Bauerle said. "She's been a very important part of our success.

"She's definitely been one of our very best swimmers in practice and we feel that she will be a key to what we accomplish down the road as a team."

The coach gives credit to the Spring Grove coaching staff.

"They did a great job of preparing Hali for the rigors of college swimming," Bauerle said.
