NEW COMMIT: West Chester, Penn. freestyler sprinter Camryn Carter has announced her verbal to stay in-state and swim for the University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2019.

Carter, who owns a Winter Nationals cut in the 50 free, swims for Suburban Seahawks and capped off her summer season with three best times and a pair of second swims at NCSAs. She earned the bronze medal in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyles at Middle Atlantic SCY Senior Championships in March.

Also competing for Unionville, Carter has qualified the Pennsylvania 3A State Championship in each of her three high school seasons. The two-time NISCA All-American placed third in the 50 free and ninth in the 100 free during her junior season.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to study and swim at the University of Pennsylvania. I would like to thank my family, friends, and coaches for supporting me along the way. Go Quakers!”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.05
  • 100 free – 51.11
  • 200 free – 1:50.98
  • 100 back – 57.52
  • 200 back – 2:05.54

Carter will make an immediate impact for the Quakers when she arrives on campus as a member of the class of 2023. Her fastest 50 free time would’ve ranked her second on their lineup last season and would’ve scored in the A-final of the 2018 Ivy League Championships.
