The California Golden Bears claimed a verbal commitment from distance freestyler Anina Lund in a bid to help regain its freestyle strength.

Lund will be a big asset to a program that had not been very strong in distance freestyle recently. She’ll partly fill a gap left by the departure of Cierra Runge from the program and will score well in the 500 and 1650 freestyles at the Pac 12 championships in her freshman year.

Lund, who currently represents Badger Swim Club in New York state, holds best times of 4:49.40 in the 500 free and 16:27.90 in the 1650 free that were done at the 2013 U.S. winter nationals. Those would be good for top-16 finishes at the 2015 Pac 12 meet. Lund also has potential to contribute in the 200 free in time, with a 1:50.23 current personal best.

Lund’s current long course lifetime bests in distance freestyle were done in 2014, but her 400 free (4:14.91) and 800 free (8:45.22) were fast enough to qualify for the Olympic Trials. She’s just seven tenths away from adding the 200 free to her Trials program as well. Her top national finish is an eighth-place spot on the podium in the 1500 free at the 2014 summer nationals, where she posted a 16:36.89.
