Evie Pfeifer Makes Verbal Commitment to Texas

A day after Victoria Edwards announced her intention to stay in Austin to swim for the University of Texas next fall, Evie Pfeifer of CSP Tideriders in Saint Louis, Missouri made it a two-fer for the Longhorns with her verbal commitment.

Pfeifer is a senior at Parkway West High School, where she is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. She is a versatile swimmer, who will add strength to the Longhorns’ free, back, and IM groups. At the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha this summer, Pfeifer competed in the 200 free, 100 back, 200 back, 200 IM, and 400 IM. In August she finaled in the 50 free, 200 free, 100 back, 200 back, 100 breast, 200 IM, and 400 IM at the 2016 NCSA Summer Swimming Championships.

Her top times include:

50 free 23.42 26.89
100 free 49.54 57.39
200 free 1:45.92 2:02.35
500/400 free 4:42.87 4:18.69
100 back 54.93 1:02.56
200 back 1:56.59 2:13.44
200 IM 2:00.57 2:15.88
400 IM 4:16.67 4:51.33

While Pfeifer isn’t yet within scoring range for NCAAs, she’s not far off in the 200 free and 500 free. She will provide plenty of Longhorn points at the Big 12 Conference meet in whichever events head coach Carol Capitani chooses to use her.
