NEW COMMIT: The University of Michigan has earned a verbal commitment for the fall of 2020 from Mount Kisco, N.Y. native Noelle Kaufmann.

Incredibly versatile, Kaufmann swims year-round with Badger Swim Club and owns 10 Summer Juniors standards, including a pair of Olympic Trials cuts. She’s coming off a stellar summer season where she placed 25th in the 200m back at Phillips 66 Nationals after winning the 200m IM at Metropolitan Seniors.

Last winter, she finished 13th in the 500 free at Juniors East before earning three golds, two silvers and three bronzes at TYR Junior Nationals. Also competing for Fox Lane High School, Kaufmann was the 200 free runner-up at the New York Federation Championships during her sophomore season.

She told Swimming World:

“I am honored to be able to continue my academic and swimming career at such a storied program. GO BLU!”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.42
  • 100 free – 50.87
  • 200 free – 1:47.22
  • 500 free – 4:47.97
  • 100 back – 54.77
  • 200 back – 1:57.81
  • 200 fly – 2:00.78
  • 200 IM – 2:00.80

Kaufmann’s versatility will be beneficial for the Wolverines when she arrives in Ann Arbor as a member of the class of 2024, and she could find herself in a number of different events. Even with a yer of club swimming still to go, she would’ve placed in the B-final of the 200 free as well as the C-final of both the 200 back and 500 free at the 2019 Big Ten Championships where Michigan finished second overall in the team standings.
