She told Swimming World:

“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Florida State University. Growing up a Nole, I’ve always dreamed of being a part of this team. After attending the swim camps, and my recruiting trip, it felt like home. I am thankful for my coaches, friends, and family who have helped me achieve this dream. Go Noles!!! 🍢🍢”

A talented mid-distance freestyle, Arnold does her club swimming with Loggerhead Aquatics and raced the 200/500 free combo at Juniors East in December.

  • 200 free – 1:50.15
  • 500 free – 4:57.22
  • 1000 free – 10:23.29

Also competing for Creekside High School, Arnold is a five-time Florida State Championship finalist. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American placed sixth in the 500 free and seventh in the 200 free as a junior at the 4A meet while taking 11th in the 50 free and 15th in the 100 free during her sophomore season at the 3A meet.
