She capped off her summer long course season with four top-25 finishes at Richmond Futures after earning the bronze in the 200m back at Virginia LCM Seniors. Also competing for Princess Anne High School, Burt took 11th in the 100 back and 14th in the 200 IM during her junior season after placing seventh in both events as a sophomore at the Virginia 5A State Championships.

She told Swimming World:

“Super excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Virginia Tech! I can’t wait to be a Hokie! #gokies”

  • 100 back – 57.46
