Carmel’s Versatile Grace Pangburn Verbally Commits to Indiana

Grace Pangburn, a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Carmel, Indiana, has announced her intention to swim for the in-state Hoosiers in 2019-20. She will join Ashley Turak, Emily Weiss, and Ryley Ober, all of whom have verbally committed to the Indiana University class of 2023.

“Excited to announce my verbal commitment to Indiana University! I can’t wait to call B-town home!! ?⚪ #redvolution #gohoosiers”

Pangburn won two Indiana High School State titles as part of Carmel’s 200 medley and 400 free relays. In the former, she led off with a 26.41 backstroke leg (although in prelims she anchored the relay with 23.43). In the latter, she split 52.01 on the second leg. Pangburn also contributed to the second-place 200 free relay (23.61 leadoff). Individually she placed 9th in the 50 free (23.54).

Swimming for Carmel Swim Club, the versatile Pangburn competed in free, back, and fly at 2017 Winter Junior Nationals. At American Short Course Championships in March, she placed 6th in the 50 free, 100 back, and 100 fly, 13th in the 200 back, and was on two winning relays. She earned PBs in the 200 back and 200 IM.
