“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to Arizona State University. From the moment I stepped on campus I knew that ASU was where I wanted to swim and further my education. I can’t wait to be a part of such a great team and to be coached by the best!”

Mawae moved to the Chicago area in the middle of her junior year, just after winning the 100 breast and the 200 free relay, and placing second in the 200 free, while swimming for The Dunham School at the 2016 Louisiana High School Division IV State Swimming Championships in Sulphur. At the time she swam year-round for Crawfish Aquatics. Since December, Mawae has been with Lake Forest Swim Club.

Her top SCY times are:

  • 100 breast – 1:07.93
  • 200 breast – 2:26.25
  • 100 free – 55.03
  • 200 free – 1:56.62
  • 100 fly – 1:00.66
  • 200 IM – 2:14.88

you guys have something better to do other than question a kid’s speed in their acceptance article?

I think there is still some school of thought that early signing means you are one of the best of the best. So naturally there is going to be some times comparisons. I don’t think the intention is to be mean to the kid. People are just interesting in seeing what times lead to a scholarship offer because the assumption is these kids are getting a scholarship with their early declaration.

The amended time of 2:26 is about right.
