NEW COMMIT: Molly Franklin, of Sandusky, Ohio, has announced her verbal commitment to swim for the University of Connecticut beginning next fall. Franklin is a senior at Sandusky High School. She trains with Vacationland Swim Club.

Her top times include:

  • 100 Fly 57.15
  • 200 fly 2:06.62
  • 200 IM 2:08.21
  • 400 IM 4:36.79
  • 200 Back 2:07.73

At last year’s American Athletic Conference Championships Franklin would have snuck into the 100 fly B final. She’ll find two great training partners for two years in Eliza Manning (56.11) and Brazil Rule (57.07). Her 200 fly best time would also make Franklin a B finalist. Sona Pinela (2:04.32 prelims) will overlap with Franklin for two years. In the 200 IM Franklin would be a good training match for Annika Grewal (2:06.94) and Holly Parker (2:07.74) who she will overlap with for one and two years, respectively.

She said of her decision to join the Huskies,

“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to pursue my academic and athletic career at The University of Connecticut!! UConn is the perfect place for me and I am very thankful to have the opportunity to join such a great team and coaching staff!! Go huskies:)”
