Futures Qualifier Maddy Hensler to Remain In-State with Verbal to Cincinnati

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.

Maddy Hensler of Cleves, OH has verbally committed to swim at the University of Cincinnati beginning in the fall of 2021. She swims club for the Cincinnati Marlins and she competes for her school, Seton High School.

“I am so ecstatic and blessed to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming careers at the University of Cincinnati! I cannot thank my family, coaches, teachers, teammates, and friends enough for all the love and support they have provided to me over the years. GO BEARCATS”

Hensler is entering her senior year at Seton High School. In February, she competed at the Ohio SW District Meet in two individual races and two relays. The Seton High School junior placed 11th in the 200 free, clocking in at 1:54.48. She later swam the 100 back in a time of 56.25, touching 2nd behind Centerville High School’s Nicola Lane. Hensler led off Seton’s 200 medley relay, going a 50 back time of 26.44, and she anchored their 400 free relay, splitting a time of 52.49.

She competed at the Ohio State Championships a week later, swimming the 100 back and the 200 free, as well as 2 relays. She placed 18th in the 100 back (57.96) and 20th in the 200 free (1:55.43). She also led off the 200 medley relay and anchored Seton’s 400 free relay.

Hensler has qualified for Futures in the 200-yard back and the 100-meter back.

Top SCY Times:

  • 50 back – 26.80
  • 100 back – 56.10
  • 200 back – 2:04.10
  • 50 free – 24.67
  • 100 free – 53.27
  • 200 free – 1:53.39

Hensler will join the Bearcats beginning in the 202-2022 season. Her times will make her one of the women’s team’s top backstrokers. She would have been their second-fastest 100 backstroker behind rising sophomore Jaclyn Klimczak, and she would’ve been their fourth-fastest 200 backstroker in the 2019-2020 season.

The University of Cincinnati has already received verbal commitments from Annabelle Young and Payton Baxter for their class of 2025.
