Junior Nats Qualifier Avalon Schultz Commits To Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Badgers have picked up a verbal from junior nats qualifier Avalon Schultz, a breaststroker from the Santa Clara Swim Club. Schultz will join the Badger women next fall after she graduates from Cupertino High School.

On her commitment:

“I chose Wisconsin because it provides me with the opportunity to swim for four more years for another amazing team, as well as get a good education in a beautiful city.”

This summer, Schultz made her first long course junior nationals cut in the 100 meter breast. She hit the mark at the 2016 Futures Championships, where she clocked a personal best 1:11.96 to earn a 2nd place finish. She also broke 2:40 in the 200 meter breast for the first time this summer, setting her new best time at 2:39.41.

Schultz’s Top Times:

Event Best time
100 breast 1:03.36
200 breast 2:17.69
100 fly 56.88
200 IM 2:03.67
400 IM 4:25.16

In yards, Schultz’s best time in the 100 breast is a 1:03.36, which would’ve put her within tenths of scoring range at the 2016 Big Ten Championships. That along with her 2:17.69 in the 200 breast give her the potential to be a conference scorer for the Badgers as a freshman.
