Annette Schultz Transfers to Florida from Louisville


The University of Florida women’s swimming and diving team and head coach Jeff Poppell officially announced the addition of Annette Schultz to the program as a transfer on Monday afternoon.

Schultz joins the Gators after spending her first two collegiate seasons at the University of Louisville, and will be immediately eligible due to out-of-conference transfer rules.

“We’re very excited to have Annette join us at Florida,” says Poppell. “We feel that she can make an immediate impact to our program, especially on relays.”

The Dexter, Mich. native competed in the fall portion of the Cardinals’ schedule in 2019, ending her sophomore campaign at the Purdue Invitational on Nov. 21-23. Additionally, she competed in a tri-meet against Indiana and Texas and duals versus Notre Dame, Tennessee and Xavier.
