NEW COMMIT: The University of Iowa has received a verbal commitment for Fall 2020 from Hartland, Wisc. butterflyer and distance freestyler Alyssa Graves.

Graves does her club swimming with Schroeder YMCA Swim Team and owns a pair of Winter Junior time standards. She most recently raced four events at YMCA Nationals after winning the mile at the Wisconsin SCY Championships. This past summer, she placed 17th in the 200m fly at Iowa City Speedo Sectionals before going on to win both fly events at the Wisconsin LCM Championships. Also competing for Arrowhead High School, Graves was the 500 free runner-up at the Wisconsin DI State Championships during both her freshman and sophomore seasons.

She told Swimming World:

“I’m beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Iowa. I would like to thank my family, coaches, teammates, and friends for all of the support and help they have given me along the way! Go Hawkeyes”

Her best times include:

  • 500 free – 4:55.23
  • 1000 free – 9:59.52
  • 1650 free – 17:00.52
  • 200 fly – 2:02.82

When she suits up for the Hawkeyes as a member of the class of 2024, Graves will add her talents to a distance group that’ll include Alleyna Thomas and Taylor Hartley as well as a fly group led by Kelsey Drake.
