NEW COMMIT: Isanti, Minn. sprint freestyler Madison “Madie” Hall has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Louisville and will join breaststroker Adry Kasemets in the Cardinals’ class of 2025.

Hall, who owns the Olympic Trials cut in the 50m free with two additional Summer Juniors cuts, does her club swimming with Great Wolf Swim Team and most recently raced three events at the Toyota U.S. Open. She placed seventh in the 100m free, ninth in the 50m free, and 10th in the 200m free at NCSAs this past summer after earning bronze in the 400m free at Minnesota LCM Seniors. Last winter, she had a pair of top-15 finishes at Juniors West and earned two best times at NCSAs.

Her best times include (SCY/LCM):

  • 50  free – 22.96/25.93
  • 100 free – 49.86/57.29
  • 200 free – 1:48.91/2:03.86
  • 500 free – 4:58.91/4:24.80
  • 100 breast – 1:03.38/1:15.23
  • 200 IM – 2:03.55/2:22.69

Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go, Hall will make a big impact both individually and on relays when she arrives in Louisville at the start of the 2021-22 season. She’ll have two years of overlap with current rookie Christiana Regenauer, as well as three years with a talented incoming freshmen class that includes Gabi Albiero, Olivia Livingston, and Tristen Ulett.

History was made last season for the Cardinals as they became the first ACC program in history to have both its men’s and women’s teams finish among the top-five in the team standings at the NCAA Championships in the same year. Highlighted by a pair of national titles for Mallory Comerford, the women’s team recorded their highest finish in program history with a fourth-place showing at the NCAA Championships. Their score of 235 points was the most points scored by a Cardinal team at NCAAs in history, and Louisville secured third place at the ACC Championships.
