NEW COMMIT: The Florida State University Seminoles recently received a verbal commitment from Estonia’s Kertu Alnek. She will join the women’s team this fall as a member of the Class of 2022.

When asked about why she chose FSU, Alnek explained,

“FSU was the best choice for me. They have a really strong class coming in and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I’m very excited to start a new chapter in my life as a Seminole!” 

The young Estonian has represented her country at a multitude of high-caliber events, including the 2016 SC World Championships, 2017 European Championships, 2017 SC European Championships, and qualified for the semi-finals five times at the 2014-16 European Junior Championships. While in Estonia she trains with Coach Riho Aljand and the Ujumise Spordiklubi Club.

Alnek’s best times in SCM:

  • 50 Free = 25.47 (converts to 22.84 SCY)
  • 100 Free = 54.85 (converts to 49.32 SCY)
  • 200 Free = 1:59.44 (converts to 1:47.79 SCY)
  • 50 Fly = 26.74 (converts to 24.06 SCY)

After converting Alnek’s times to SCY, it is clear that Alnek can do some great things at FSU. Her converted 50 free time puts her just outside of the 2018 ACC Championship scoring range, while her converted 100 & 200 free times would have earned her points in the B and C finals respectively.

All time conversions were done using Swimming World’s “Swim Time Conversion.”
