Academy Bullets’ Kenzie Arens has given her verbal commitment to swim for the University of Cincinnati beginning in the fall of 2018.

The freestyler has immediate scoring potential at the American Athletic Conference Championship.

Her best times are:

  • 200 Free 1:55.38
  • 500 Free 4:57.61
  • 1000 Free 10:20.86
  • 1650 Free 16:56.51

Arens’ best conference finish would have been ninth in the 1650. Sara Wanasek led the team’s distance efforts this year, but she will have graduated by Arens’ arrival. Sarah Laabs (16:39.26) finished fifth this year as a freshman and sophomore Caroline Sheehan (17:04.52) placed ninth. Arens will fit between that duo in the distance training group.
