NEW COMMIT: Washington State University has added a new verbal commitment to their growing class of 2025 from Taylor Schababerle of Katy, Texas.

She will join Sophie Macy and fellow Lone Star State native Noelle Marsh in Pullman, Wash. at the start of the 2021-22 season.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Washington State University! I would like to thank my family, friends, and coaches who helped me to make this decision. Go Cougs!”

A talented freestyler, Schababerle does her club swimming with Katy Aquatics and won the 1000 free at the Gulf Short Course Championship meet in February where she also placed third in the 500 free and fourth in the 200 free. Last summer, she achieved three best times at Southern Zone Seniors where she had four top-18 finishes.

Her best times include:

  • 100 free – 52.11
  • 200 free – 1:51.33
  • 500 free – 5:00.46
  • 1000 free – 10:20.92
  • 1650 free – 17:41.91

Also competing for Taylor High School, Schababerle finished ninth in the 200 free at the Texas 6A State Championships during her junior season. She is also placed second in the 500 free and third in the 500 free in 2020 at the UIL 6A Region 05 meet.

Schababerle will make a big impact for the Cougars next year as her best time in the 500 free would’ve ranked third on their lineup last year while she would’ve been their second-fastest 1000 freestyler. Her older brother, Jake Schababerle, just entered his junior season competing for the Texas A&M Aggies.
