NEW COMMIT: Michigan State University has earned a new verbal commitment for the 2020-21 season and beyond from talented breaststroker Olivia Starzomski of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

Starzomski does her club swimming with Sault Surge Aquatic Team and also attends the Ontario Swimming Academy under head coach Don Burton. She most recently competed at the Speedo Eastern Canadian Championships where she earned bronze in the 200m breast and took fourth in the 100m breast. At the Canadian Swimming Trials in April, she had a pair of top-20 finishes after winning the 100m/200m breast combo at the Ontario Championships in March. She also earned gold in the 200m breast and silver in the 100m breast at Swim Canada Junior Championships last summer.

She told Swimming World:

“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to Michigan State University! I would like to thank coaches Matt [Gianodis] and Kathleen [Milloy] for this great opportunity! Without the support of my coaches and family, this opportunity would not have been possible. I’m looking forward to being a Spartan and enjoying everything that Michigan State Swimming & Diving has to offer me.”

In LCM, her best times include:

  • 50m breast – 34.50
  • 100m breast – 1:11.87
  • 200m breast – 2:32.94
  • 200m IM – 2:28.97

In SCY, those times convert to:

  • 50 breast – 30.25
  • 100 breast – 1:03.24
  • 200 breast – 2:15.81
  • 200 IM – 2:10.64

Arriving in East Lansing as a member of the class of 2024, Starzomski is a huge get for the Spartans and will add some much-needed breaststroke depth to their lineup. She’ll have two years of overlap with top returning Michigan State breaststroker Erin Szara, who placed 12th in the 100 breast at the 2019 Big Ten Championships.
