Liberty University has picked up another verbal commitment for the Class of 2021 as Lindsey Cohee has given the verbal nod to the Flames. Cohee is now swimming for SwimMAC Carolina after making the move to North Carolina from Florida in April. At the Florida 3A State Championships last November, she finished as the 100 fly runner up (56.28) and also secured eighth in the 200 IM (2:09.33).

She shared,

“I am excited to announce Liberty University as my school of choice! I love Liberty’s breath-taking view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and their gorgeous campus buildings and am confident that this is where the Lord wants me to be. I am impressed with how far coach Jake and coach Jessica have taken their team in such a short time. Coach Jake has done a fantastic job designing a state-of-the-art training facility for his swimmers and I can’t wait to be a part of their program. Go Flames!!”

Her top times are (SCY/LCM):

  • 100 Fly 56.28/ 1:02.01
  • 200 Fly 2:01.51/ 2:17.18
  • 200 IM 2:09.33/2:28.40

Liberty finished as runner-ups at the 2016 CCSA Championships. Cohee should contribute some points to the effort. Her best 200 butterfly time would have made her an A finalist last year while she would have landed in the 100 butterfly B final.

She’ll join a Liberty class that includes Emily ManlyKiah Francis and Payton Keiner.
