NEW COMMIT: Caroline Baber has announced her verbal commitment to Washington and Lee University. Baber is from Richmond, Virginia where she swims for Nova of Virginia Aquatics and is a senior at The Collegiate School.

Her top times include:

  • 400 IM 4:25.82
  • 200 IM 2:05.99
  • 50 Breast 30.69
  • 100 Breast 1:05.05
  • 200 Breast 2:21.91
  • 100 Free 52.22

Baber will be a huge addition to the reigning Old Dominion Athletic Conference Champions. Last year she would have been an NCAA qualifier and A finalist in the 400 IM. Her best 400 IM time is also well under the school record of 4:31.00 set by Emily Hageboeck last year. Baber is also closing in on Hageboeck’s 100 breaststroke mark of 1:04.64. Her 100 freestyle time will also likely land her a spot on the General’s 400 freestyle relay.

Baber said of her decision,

“I can’t wait to spend the next four years swimming for Washington & Lee University! W&L has the perfect mix of athletics & academics I was looking for and I couldn’t be more excited!”
