Sprinter Arianna Zelen To Join Sister At Wisconsin In 2025

NEW COMMIT: The University of Wisconsin has received a new verbal commitment for the 2024-25 season and beyond from sprinter Arianna Zelen of Shakopee, Minnesota.

Her older sister, Haley Zelen, is currently a freshman on the team and the two will reunite for two seasons.

She will join Sarah Larsen as a member of the Badgers’ Class of 2029.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am extremely grateful and so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at the University of Wisconsin-Madison! I’d like to thank all of my friends, family and coaches who have supported me along the way. Also a special thanks to the @badgerswimdive coaching staff for giving me this opportunity. Go Badgers!”

Zelen does her club swimming with South Metro Storm and most recently won the 50m free at Phoenix Sectionals after winning the 100 breast and 100 IM at Minnesota SCY Seniors. She competed at Juniors West in December and won the 100m breast at Minnesota LCM Seniors.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 22.97
  • 100 free – 49.86
  • 200 free – 1:50.57
  • 100 breast – 1:02.64

Currently a junior at Shakopee High School, Zelen won the 100 free and placed fourth in the 100 breast at the 2023 Minnesota AA State Championships. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American took fourth in the 100 free and fifth in the 200 free as a sophomore.
