NEW COMMIT: Auburn University has gained a new verbal pledge from Averee Preble, the Clovis, Calif. native who will join the Tigers as a member of the class of 2023.

Preble swims year-round with Clovis Swim Club and has six Junior National cuts with a pair of U.S. Open standards. She most recently competed at Junior Nationals this summer where she recorded two lifetime bests and finaled in the 400m free. She was a four-time finalist and notched four personal bests at the NCSA Championships in March and raced at Winter Nationals with a trio of final appearances.

In addition to club swimming, Preble is also a six-time state finalist competing for Clovis High School. During her junior season, she swam her way to fifth in the 500 free and 14th in the 100 fly at the CIF State Championships. She was just shy of the CIF Central Section DI 100 fly record and won the 500 free a few weeks prior. The NISCA All-American placed seventh in the 200 IM as a sophomore after finishing fifth in the 500 as a rookie at the state meet.

She told Swimming World:

“Im super excited to announce my verbal commit to swim and study and Auburn University!! I’m so so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a great program. Thank you to everyone who helped me with this decision. War Eagle!!”

Her best times include:

  • 200 free – 1:51.61
  • 500 free – 4:48.93
  • 1000 free – 9:51.67
  • 200 fly – 1:59.22
  • 200 IM – 2:01.93
  • 400 IM – 4:17.04

Preble will provide tremendous depth to the Tigers’ lineup when she arrives on campus for the 2019-20 season. She would’ve scored in the C-final of the 200 fly at the 2018 SEC Championships and sits just outside of scoring range in a few other events. Auburn finished fifth in the team standings at last season’s conference meet.
