Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I’m so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at TCU!! I was drawn by Coach Winchester’s devotion to his athletes and ambitions for this ever-growing swimming program, the amazing coaching staff and the family-like team. I’m so grateful for all of the support I got throughout this process. Go Frogs!”

Primarily a butterflyer, Dahmen swims year-round with Pointe-Claire Swim Club and recently raced two events at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Knoxville. She finished fourth in the 100m fly and fifth in the 50m fly at the Ontario International Junior meet in December and was the 50m fly runner-up at the Speedo Eastern Canadian Championships in 2019.

Her best times include (LCM/SCY conversion):

  • 50m fly – 27.63/24.14
  • 100m fly – 1:01.56/54.60
  • 200m fly – 2:19.83/2:04.58
  • 100m free – 59.63/52.71

Last summer, Dahmen won the 100m fly and took seventh in the 200m fly at the Canadian Junior Championships. At the Canadian Swimming Trials in April 2019, she finished 13th in the 50m fly.
