NEW COMMIT: Ashburn, Va. freestyle Madison Gupton has made her commitment to the University of North Florida and will arrive in Jacksonville next fall.

Gupton does her club swimming with Nation’s Capital and competed in six events at Potomac Valley LCM Seniors this summer where she finaled in the 200m fly. She recorded a best time at Potomac Valley SCY Seniors in March with a seventh-place finish in the 1000 free and raced three times at Christiansburg Speedo Sectionals.

Also swimming for Briar Woods High School, Gupton is a six-time Virginia 5A State Championship finalist. She finished eighth in the 200 free and 11th in the 500 free as a junior after placing 12th and 16th, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season. Gupton finished sixth in both races during her freshman campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“I’m excited to announce my commitment to the University of North Florida to continue my academic and swimming career! During my recruiting trip, I knew that this is where I wanted to be. The team, Coach Coffey, and Coach Claire were all super welcoming, and I can’t wait to be with them for the next four years. Thank you to my family, friends, and coaches for getting me to where I am today. SWOOP!”

Her best times include:

  • 100 free – 54.63
  • 200 free – 1:55.90
  • 500 free – 5:09.99
  • 1000 free – 10:47.51
  • 1650 free – 17:57.46

When she suits up for the Ospreys as a member of the class of 2023, Gupton will join a freestyle group that includes Hannah CordesSarah Trago and Ally Schilling. Her fastest mile time would’ve scored in the top-20 at the 2018 CCSA Championships.
