NEW COMMIT: Isabel Ivey, one of the top swimmers in the high school class of 2019, has given her verbal commitment to swim for the University of California Berkeley beginning in the 2019-2020 season. The National Junior Teamer is an incredibly versatile swimmer, and best at short distances, making her a potentially key relay piece and even more valuable force in the NCAA. Ivey is a junior at Buchholz High School in Gainesville, Florida and swims for Gator Swim Club.

Her top SCY times include:

  • 100 Back 52.27
  • 50 Free 22.43
  • 100 Free 47.88
  • 200 Free 1:43.64
  • 200 IM 1:55.77
  • 100 Fly 52.61
  • 100 Breast 1:00.99

In long course Ivey’s top times are:

  • 200 Free 1:58.94
  • 100 Free 54.95
  • 50 Free 25.21
  • 100 Back 1:01.36
  • 100 Fly 59.96
  • 200 IM 2:15.93

Ivey was the Florida 4A high school state champion in the 200 free and 100 breaststroke this fall, setting the state record and her lifetime best in the later. She was also key to the team’s winning 200 and 400 freestyle relays as the team won the state title.

At the 2017 NCAA Division 1 Championship Ivey would have been a 200 freestyle A finalist and a 100 freestyle B finalist with her lifetime bests. She also would have landed in the 200 IM B final. The Golden Bears’ 800 freestyle relay finished second last year with splits ranging from 1:42.66 to 1:43.97. That entire relay has already/will have graduated by Ivey’s arrival, likely landing her a spot. The team’s 400 freestyle relay was third, and Ivey’s best flat start is already just a tenth shy of the team’s slowest split.
