Oak Ridge High senior Sara Haley has accepted an athletic scholarship from Louisana State University. Haley, a standout swimmer at Oak Ridge and with the Sierra Marlins, will receive a full scholarship from LSU. She will sign a letter of intent on Nov. 12. Haley chose LSU over Hawaii, Arizona and Washington. Haley, 17, began swimming at age six as a member of the El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils recreation swim team. The combination of intense training, dedication and dreaming big resulted in a spot at the 2008 Olympic Swim Trials in Omaha in the 200-meter butterfly.
