Sarah Cano from Cedar Park, Texas has announced via social media that she intends to swim at the University of Illinois in the fall. She will join Abby Martin, Caroline Hippen, and Sidney Kennedy in the Illinois class of 2022.
“Beyond excited to announce my verbal committed to swim & study at the University of Illinois!! Go Fighting Illini??”
Cano is primarily a backstroke/IM specialist who swims for Leander High School and Nitro Swimming.

After Winter Juniors West, in which she earned best times in the 50 back and 200 free, she went on to lower her PBs in the SCY 100 free and 100/200 breast in the spring, and in the LCM 50/200 free, 50/100/200 back, 100 breast, and 200 IM during the summer. Nearly all her best LCM times came out of the Austin Sectionals weekend. There she finaled in three events, finishing 16th in the 100m back, 15th in the 200m back, and 37th in the 200 IM.
