Allie Worrall plans to continue shaving time off her career bests as one of Nebraska’s top sprint freestylers in 2018-19. Last season, Worrall set career bests in both the 100 and 200 free races at the Big Ten Championships, including a 17-spot improvement in the 200 free. A strong performer in the classroom as well, the junior from Arizona will also take aim at her second straight academic All-Big Ten award in 2019.
Worrall amassed 11 top-five finishes as a sophomore for the Huskers. She was a strong performer in the 100 freestyle, where she recorded five top-five finishes. She produced a trio of top-50 finishes at the 2018 Big Ten Championships, including 43rd in the 50 freestyle (23.48). She added two career bests, including a 38th-place finish in the 200 free (1:49.64) and 45th-place showing in the 100 free (50.83), which was eight spots higher than she finished at the 2017 conference meet. Worrall appeared in multiple relays and swam the second leg of the 800-yard freestyle relay that took second at the Mizzou Invite, joining Autumn Haebig, Savannah Savitt and Allison Kopas (7:23.11). In the classroom, Worrall earned academic All-Big Ten honors for the first time and claimed spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in both the fall and spring semesters of 2017-18. She earned a spot on the 2018 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
Worrall had a solid first year as a Husker, racking up nine top-five finishes, including four wins in dual victories over Illinois, Kansas and Northern Iowa. She set four career bests, with three of those coming at the 2017 Big Ten Championships. She raced to a time of 23.29 to finish 34th in the 50 free. In the 100-yard freestyle, Worrall earned 53rd with a time of 51.26, while adding a season-best 1:50.78 in the 200-yard free to finish 55th. She was part of the 400-yard medley relay (Julia Roller, Samantha Hedrick, Worrall and Erin Oeltjen) that earned a No. 50 national ranking from CollegeSwimming.com (3:39.56). One of Worrall’s strongest performances came against Kansas, when she captured first-place finishes in both the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard freestyle. Worrall also got off to a strong start in the classroom, claiming spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters. She was also a member of the 2017 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team for her work in the community.
The Arizona high school state champion in the 100-yard freestyle in 2016, Worrall added a second-place finish in the 50 free at the Arizona Class 5A state meet while swimming at Xavier College Prep in Phoenix. During her time swimming for Phoenix Swim Club, Worrall won the 2015 Long Course and the 2016 Short Course Arizona State Championships in the 100 free. Worrall also racked up multiple first-place relay finishes at the 2016 Short Course Arizona State Championships.
