Kylie Stewart was born March 27, 1996 in Acworth, Ga. to parents, Jeff and Kim. Stewart is a freshman butterfly and backstroke specialist at the University of Georgia. Stewart is a football fan, and after taking a big look at both Tennessee and Texas, Georgia seemed the right fit. Although she’s undecided on a major, Stewart has already put up times in four events that rank in Georgia’s top 10. She can swim any event, and is versatile enough to be a threat anywhere from the 50 to the 500 freestyle in addition to her specialty events. She’s a member of a 2014 Georgia recruiting class that signed three top 10 recruits – bluechip swimmers that have made an impact right away.
