NEW COMMIT: U.S. Open qualifier Zoe Summar of Franklin, Tenn. has announced her decision to continue her academic and swimming career at Arizona State University beginning in the fall of 2022.

She is the Sun Devils’ first public verbal commitment for their Class of 2026.

She told Swimming World:

“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic study at Arizona State University! I want to thank my family, coaches, and everyone who made this dream come true. Go SunDevils ️#forksup”

A versatile swimmer, Summar does her club swimming with Excel Aquatics and owns several Junior National and U.S. Open cuts. She most recently won the 200 breast with three runner-up showings at the Southeastern Championships in February after racing six events at Juniors East in December.

In summer 2019, she won the 200m free, 200m back, and 200m IM at the Southeastern LCM Championships before going on to earn a best time in the 200m IM at Junior Nationals.

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 25.93
  • 100 back – 54.89
  • 200 back – 1:57.93
  • 100 breast – 1:04.79
  • 200 breast – 2:17.52
  • 200 free – 1:49.89
  • 500 free – 4:59.77
  • 200 IM – 2:02.18
  • 400 IM – 4:25.62

Currently a junior at Centennial High School, Summar is already a four-time individual TISCA State Championship finalist. She placed third in the 100 back and fourth in the 200 free as a sophomore while taking second in the 200 IM and sixth in the 500 free during her freshman season.

When she arrives in Tempe at the start of the 2022-23 season, Summar’s versatility will make a big impact and she could find herself in a number of different events throughout her college career. She would’ve placed in the C-final of the 100 back, 200 back, 200 breast, and 400 IM at last season’s conference meet.

The Sun Devils, who are currently redshirting this season, finished fifth overall in the team standings at the 2020 Pac-12 Championships.
