NEW COMMIT: Caroline Dunigan of Lansdale, Penn. has announced her verbal committed to Ohio University beginning in the 2020-21 season.

Dunigan swims year-round with North Penn Aquatic Club and owns the Winter Juniors standard in the 50 free. She most recently competed at the Middle Atlantic Senior Championships where she was the runner-up in the 50 free with three lifetime bests. Also competing for North Penn Senior High School, Dunigan finished second in the 50 free and fifth in the 100 free as a junior at the Pennsylvania 3A State Championships after placing 11th in the latter during her sophomore season.

She told Swimming World:

“Very excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Ohio University. Thanks to my family, coaches and friends for guiding me through this process. Go Bobcats!”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.32
  • 100 free – 51.18
  • 200 free – 1:54.01
  • 500 free – 5:10.42

Dunigan will add valuable sprint depth to the Bobcats’ lineup when she arrives on campus in the fall of 2020 and will be an asset to their relays. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 50 free and 100 free at the 2019 MAC Championships where Ohio finished fifth overall in the team standings.
