NEW COMMIT: Junior National qualifier Caroline McCurdy of Wellesley Hills, Ma. has announced her verbal commitment* to Yale University beginning in the fall of 2022.

She will join fellow New England native Sydney Kang of Newmarket, N.H. as a member of the Bulldogs’ Class of 2026.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am honored to announce my verbal commitment to the admissions process to swim and study at Yale University! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way to make this dream come true. Go bulldogs!!🐶💙”

A talented sprint freestyler, McCurdy trains year-round with Gator Swim Club and most recently placed second in the 50 free, fourth in the 100 free, and third in the 200 free at the 18&U Winter Championships in Massachusetts. She also recorded five top-12 finishes at New England Seniors last December.

In Summer 2019, she collected bronze in the 50m free at New England LCM Seniors before going on to place 11th in that event as well as 20th in the 100m free at Geneva Futures.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.36
  • 100 free – 50.65
  • 200 free – 1:50.69
  • 500 free – 4:59.06
  • 200 IM – 2:06.50

McCurdy has also earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for her efforts in the pool and in the classroom.

Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before suiting up for the Bulldogs, McCurdy will make a big impact both individually and on relays. She would’ve placed in the B-final of the 100 free at the 2020 Ivy League Championships where Yale finished third overall in the team standings and is just shy of scoring range in the 50/200 free.
