NEW COMMIT: The University of Arizona has earned a new verbal commitment for the class of 2024 from Marco Island, Fla. native Madeline “Maddy” Burt.

Burt does her club swimming with Swim Florida and owns the U.S. Open standard in the 100 fly. She most recently competed at the Florida Spring Swim meet where she earned gold medals in the 50 fly and 200 fly after competed at Juniors East in December. She also capped off her long course season with a trio of top-10 finishes at Gainesville Speedo Sectionals.

While competing for Saint John Neumann High School, Burt is a six-time Florida 1A State Championship finalist. She placed second in the 100 fly and third in the 50 free as a junior and was the 100 fly runner-up during her sophomore season as well. Burt has also earned NISCA All-American honors twice in her career thus far.

She told Swimming World:

“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Arizona! I loved the team atmosphere and felt at home on the campus. I would like to thank my coaches, parents and everyone who helped me along the way! Go Wildcats!! Bear Down!!”

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 53.62
  • 200 fly – 2:00.06
  • 50 free – 23.37
  • 100 free – 51.92

Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before suiting up for the Wildcats, Burt will make an immediate impact in their fly group. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100 fly as well as the C-final of the 200 fly at the 2019 Pac-12 Championships where Arizona finished fifth overall in the team standings.
