Keiryn Swenson, who will be a senior at Maize, has made an oral commitment to play basketball at Arkansas. She will also throw javelin.

Swenson, an All-Metro basketball selection in March, was named Kansas’ female Gatorade track athlete of the year after winning the Class 6A javelin in May with a throw of 148 feet, 4 inches. She won the Kansas Relays in April, throwing 155-2, which ranked fifth in the nation at that time.

Swenson is also a standout volleyball player.

Swenson originally made an oral commitment to play basketball at Tulsa but withdrew her commitment early in July.
