Peyton Quattlebaum has verbally committed to the University of Texas. She trains with the Houston Swim Club and is a strong mid-distance to distance freestyler.

Quattlebaum explained her decision to Swimming World,

“I chose Texas because when I stepped on campus and met the team and coaches it felt like home. I love the positive energy the team has and how they encourage each other to be the best they can possibly be.  I’m so excited and honored to be a part of a team that is striving to be not only better athletes but people as well. Hook em!”

Quattlebaum’s best times:

200 Freestyle: 1:51.79

500: 4:49.81

1000: 9:57.59

1650: 16:33.04

Her 200 freestyle time came down by nearly a second last year. Quattlebaum also broke 10 minutes in the 1000 for the first time in February.

At last season’s Big 12 Championships, Quattlebaum’s best 1650 time would have finished third. She would have also picked up points finishing fourth in the 500 freestyle and in the B final of the 200 freestyle.

Evie Pfeifer and Victoria Edwards have also committed to the University of Texas this fall. While Edwards, an Austin native, is another in state talent, Pfeifer will give Quattlebaum a distance training partner. Pfeifer boasts bests of 9:48.21 in the 1000 and 4:42.87 in the 500 freestyle.
