NEW COMMIT: The University of Wisconsin will add another in-state swimmer to their roster next fall. Ozaukee Aquatics’ Jenna Silvestri has given her verbal commitment to the Badgers.

Silvestri excels in the breaststrokes and puts together a strong IM as well. Her top times are:

  • 50 Breast 30.94
  • 100 Breast 1:04.09
  • 200 Breast 2:20.98
  • 200 IM 2:04.79

The senior at Kohler/Sheboygan Area Lutheran had a strong showing at the Wisconsin Division 2 High School state championships last fall. Silvestri was runner up in the 200 IM. She then swam to a tie for gold in the 100 breaststroke.

With still over a year to go until she makes her collegiate debut Silvestri isn’t quite in Big Ten scoring range yet. She’ll join a breaststroke group that should still include Elizabeth Brown and Kendall Smith, both potential training partners for Silvestri.
