NEW COMMIT: The University of Kansas has received a new verbal commitment for Fall 2020 from St. Peters, Missouri native and current high school junior Ellie Wehrmann.

Wehrmann swims year-round with the Flyers Aquatic Swim Team and most recently competed at Columbia Speedo Sectionals where she won the 200 free and placed third in the 100 free. This past summer, she earned three lifetime bests at NCSAs after winning the 50m free and 400m IM at the Ozark LCM Championships.

Also competing for Incarnate Word Academy, Wehrmann is a six-time Missouri Class 1 State Championship finalist. During her junior season, the current Class 1 record-holder was the 200 free runner-up and won the 100 free. She also won the 100/200 free combo as a sophomore after placing third and fifth, respectively, in those events during her rookie campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“I’m beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at the University of Kansas! Thank you to my family, friends, and coaches for their endless support throughout my swimming career. I can’t wait to be a Jayhawk like my mom! Rock Chalk”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.67
  • 100 free – 51.14
  • 200 free – 1:50.59
  • 100 back – 57.20
  • 100 fly – 55.95
  • 200 IM – 2:05.58

Wehrmann’s versatility will make an immediate impact when she suits up for the Jayhawks as a member of the class of 2024. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100/200 free, 100 fly and 200 IM as well as the C-final of the 50 free and 100 back at the 2019 Big 12 Championships where Kansas finished second overall in the team standings.
