Her best times include:

  • 100 breast – 1:02.61

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I could not be more excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at Auburn University!!! Thank you so much to my friends, family, teammates and coaches for being part of this amazing adventure! ??WAR EAGLE??”

A talented backstroker, Maloney owns the Olympic Trials cut in the 100m back and most recently earned bronze in the 100 back and took sixth in the 200 back at the Southern Premier Invitational in March. She placed 14th in the 100 back and 12th in the 200 back at Juniors East in December while taking eighth and 17th in those events at Greensboro Futures in summer 2019.

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 25.82
  • 100 back – 54.40
  • 200 back – 1:57.84

Currently a junior at Chamblee Charter School, Maloney is already a four-time Georgia 4-5A State Championship finalist. She won the 100 back and finished third in the 200 free as a sophomore while taking second and sixth, respectively, in those events during her freshman season.
