NEW COMMIT: The University of Cincinnati has picked up their second early verbal commitment for the 2022-23 season and beyond from Grace Gavin of St. John’s, Fla.

She will join Abi Carroll of Heath, Texas as a member of the Bearcats’ Class of 2026.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Cincinnati! Forever grateful to my family, friends, Coach John from Loggerheads, and Ms. Lori from ACC recruits for their support and mentorship. Can’t wait for this next chapter! Go Bearcats!!?❤️?”

Gavin does her club swimming with Loggerhead Aquatics and most recently raced five events at NCSAs after a strong showing at the 18&U Winter Championships. She won the 50m back at the Florida Age Group Championships in Summer 2019 before going on to race at Greensboro Futures.

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 26.40
  • 100 back – 56.23
  • 200 back – 2:03.31
  • 100 fly – 57.12
  • 200 fly – 2:08.45
  • 50 free – 24.42
  • 100 free – 54.63
  • 200 free – 1:56.98

Currently a junior at Creekside High School, Gavin placed fourth in the 100 back and sixth in the 200 free as a junior at the Florida 4A State Championships. She raced to second and fifth, respectively, in those events at the FHSAA 4A Region 1 meet the week prior.

Gavin would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100/200 back and 100/200 fly at the 2021 American Athletic Conference Championships where Cincinnati finished third overall in the team standings.
