Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim for the University of Florida! Thank you to all my coaches, family, and friends for supporting me!”

A talented distance swimmer, Schleicher swims year-round with South Florida Aquatic Club and is a Junior National qualifier. She most recently earned silver in both the 400m IM and 1500m free as well as bronze in the 400m free at Plantation Sectionals in March.
