Camryn Forbes of the Butler County YMCA has announced her verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University via her Twitter account, beginning with the 2017-18 season.

A senior this year at Knoch High School, Forbes has maintained her reign as the YMCA national record-holder in the 100-meter backstroke for the last three years. Forbes originally posted the national record mark at a 1:02.68 in 2014, dipping below to a 1:02.54 in 2015, before setting it firmly at a 1:02.14 this past summer.

Some of Forbes’ top times include:

  • 50 BACK: 25.60 (SCY), 229.41 (LCM)
  • 100 BACK: 54.02 (SCY), 1:02.14 (LCM)
  • 200 BACK: 1:57.59 (SCY), 2:14.27 (LCM)
  • 200 IM: 2:00.79 (SCY), 2:23.50 (LCM)
  • 50 FREE: 23.87 (SCY), 26.76 (LCM)
  • 100 FREE: 50.15 (SCY), 57.03 (LCM)
  • 200 FREE: 1:49.56 (SCY), 2:02.76 (LCM)

Both of Forbes’ 100 and 200 backstroke times would have placed her within the ‘B’ final at last March’s Big 10 Championships.
