Backstroker Madi Lloyd Gives Verbal Commitment to Nebraska for 2021-22

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Madi Lloyd, who hails from Kingwood, Texas, has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Nebraska for 2021-22.

“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to continue my academic and athletic career. The moment I met the team and coaches I knew Nebraska was the place for me. I cannot wait to be apart [sic] of the Husker family, GO BIG RED!”

Lloyd attends Kingwood High School where she is a junior. She swims year-round for Blue Tide Aquatics and is a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 200 back. As a sophomore, she was an A-finalist in the 100 back at 2019 Texas UIL 6A (largest schools) State Championships. Most of her best SCY times come from last December’s 2018 Southern Senior Championships where she placed 4th in the 100 back, 9th in the 200 back, 29th in the 100 breast, and 7th in the 200 fly. She left the meet with new PBs in the 50/100/1000 free, 50/200 back, 100 breast, and 200 fly. A week later she competed at Winter Juniors West in the 200 back. Lloyd had a strong LCM season which she wrapped up at Southern Zone Senior Championships with a silver medal in the 200 back, 4th-place finishes in the 100 back and 200 IM, and a 15th and a 29th in the 100 free and 50 free. The 50 free, 100/200 back, and 200 IM were PBs.

The Cornhuskers will have turned over their entire 2018-19 backstroke squad by the time Lloyd begins in Lincoln. Nebraska scored in both the 100 back (Autumn Haebig) and 200 back (Anna McDonald) at 2019 B1G Championships. It took 54.31/1:58.80 to get second swims in the backstroke events at B1Gs.
