This has been a whirlwind of an off-season in terms of D1 transfer shake-ups, with a lot of movement in and out of Arizona State and Indiana, in particular. The next move is a transfer out of Arizona State, as Emily Glinecke has announced her decision to transfer across the country to Florida Gulf Coast University.
Glinecke has spent two years as a student-athlete at Arizona State, meaning she’ll have two years of eligibility left with the Eagles of FGCU. She is originally from Pottstown, Pennsylvania.
As a freshman, Glinecke made the 200 breast B final and 100 breast C final in individual efforts for the Sun Devils at the 2017 Pac-12 Championships. She C-finaled in the 100 breast again this season as a sophomore but was unable to score in the 200 breast. In the breaststrokes, Glinecke was 1:01/2:16 as a freshman at Pac-12s compared to the 1:03/2:20 she produced this year.
- 100 breast – 1:01.92
- 200 breast – 2:16.23
- 200 IM – 2:06.87
- 200 free – 1:51.81
FGCU just graduated Sommer Harris, the 2018 CCSA conference champion in the 100 breast, along with Hannah Soutar, the 2018 conference champ in the 200 breast. Petra Halmai, a rising sophomore, finished 2nd in the 200 and 3rd in the 100, and will be one of Glinecke’s primary training partners next season. Already, with her best times, Glinecke will be competing for a conference crown in at least the 100 breast, so this is a big pickup for the Eagles.
Rising sophomore Dylan Boyd recently announced his transfer out of ASU, to Michigan, while ASU’s men’s team picked up two transfers from Indiana. A big get for the ASU women this post-season has been Olympian Cierra Runge.
