NEW COMMIT: The University of Notre Dame has scored a new verbal commitment for the 2025-26 season and beyond from Tess Heavner of Fenton, Michigan.

“I am blessed to announce my verbal commitment to continue mv academic and athletic career at the University of Notre Dame! I’d like to thank God, my family, and every friend, teammate, coach, and teacher who has supported me over the years. I’d also like to thank @ndswimdive coaches and swimmers for being so welcoming and supportive. GO IRISH!”

A versatile swimmer, Heavner trains year-round with Club Wolverine and raced three events at Juniors East in December. She placed sixth in the 200 back and seventh in the 200 IM at Austin Sectionals last March.

Her best times include:
