Florida Gulf Coast University picks up another commitment for the 2015-2016 season from Maine’s Georgie Gardner. Gardner made her decision to join the Eagles, deciding to be apart of one of the top mid-major backstroke training groups.
“I’m super excited to attend FGCU!” Gardner said. “The coaching staff is amazing and the team is just like a family. Go Eagles!”
Although she lives in Maine, Gardner trains at Seacoast Swimming Association in New Hampshire. Seacoast Swimming Association has been one of the top club teams in New Hampshire for some time, and has traditionally been sending swimmers to top universities.
Gardner will provide depth for the Eagles in the backstroke events and the IMs. Her best times in yards are:
100 Back= 58.39
200 Back= 2:05.86
200 IM= 2:11.45
400 IM= 4:35.39
While those times would’ve been just short of making finals last year at the CCSA Championship, Gardner has the potential to improve and make herself a strong contender for the Eagles.
