North Carolina’s Olivia Carter has committed to swim for the University of Georgia beginning in the 2018-2019 season. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American swims for the Winston-Salem based Enfinity Aquatic Club.

At Winter Junior Nationals East in December Carter won the 200 butterfly and finished second in the 100 fly and sixth in the 100 backstroke.

Her best times are:

  • 100 Fly 52.65
  • 200 Fly 1:55.78
  • 100 Back 53.94
  • 200 Back 1:57.24
  • 200 IM 1:57.92

Her best 200 fly time would have finished fifth in the SEC this year. Georgia grabbed second and third places with Chelsea Britt and Megan Kingsley but that duo will have graduated by Carter’s arrival. Carter’s best 200 backstroke time would put her in the C final while her 100 butterfly and 200 IM times would be B final swims.

She joins fellow North Carolinian Madison Homovich in the Bulldogs’ Class of 2022. In the current North Carolina Swimming rankings the duo are third (Carter) and fourth (Homovich) in the 200 short course freestyle for 16 year olds in the 2016-2017 season. They also both appear in the top five for the 500 freestyle, 200 butterfly, 200 and 400 IM, and 200 backstroke. Given their similar times across events, the duo should make great training partners in Athens.
