FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Associate Head Coach Becca Weiland announced two new signees for the Alaska Nanooks swimming program, drawing talents from Minnesota.
Sydney Gulon signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Nooks for the 2018-2019 season.
The swimmer from Detroit Lakes High School in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota comes to Fairbanks as a six time letter winner and placed in the top eight for the 100 yard breaststroke and 500 yard freestyle for the Minnesota State Swimming Championships.
Gulon also is one of the top swimmers from Detroit Lakes, with her holding school records in the 200 yard medley relay, 500 yard freestyle, the 100 yard breaststroke, the 100 freestyle, 200 yard freestyle relay and the 400 yard freestyle relay.
Gulon is planning on majoring in justice and a minor in psychology.
And the Nanooks will also be adding MaKayla Suominen, who signed her NLI this week.
Suominen comes to the great frozen north as a champion back in 2016 in the 50 yard freestyle.
In her years with the CEC Lumberjacks in Cloquet, Minnesota, she placed in the top four for the 50 and 100 yard freestyles for the state championships.
She also owns the school records in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle, the 200 yard medley relay, and the 200 and 400 yard freestyle relay.
Suominen also holds the state 7A records in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle.
