Butterflier Abby Gibbons of the Blue Dolfins has verbally committed to the Auburn Tigers for the fall of 2020, joining their class of 2024. Gibbons is a junior at Oviedo High School, just northeast of Orlando.

Super blessed and excited to announce my verbal commitment to Auburn to continue my academic and swimming careers. There’s no other school or team that made me feel more like I was home. A huge thanks for the love and support from my coaches, team mates, and of course parents. War Eagle!!

Gibbons is coming off of a great junior high school season with Oviedo, where she swam to a runner-up finish at the 2018 FHSAA 4A Champs in the 100 fly (53.45) and a 4th place finish in the 50 free (23.29). She had a strong 23.62 butterfly split to help Oviedo’s 200 medley relay place 2nd, while she led off their 2nd place 200 free relay, too.

Auburn is led in the butterfly by seniors Aly Tetzloff and Bailey Nero and sophomore Jewels Harris. Harris will be a senior when Gibbons is a freshman. For the 2018-19 season Auburn top times list, which may not include roster members’ fully tapered times quite yet, Gibbons would rank 2nd in the 200 fly and 4th in the 100 fly.
