Louisville, Kentucky-native Kaylee Wheeler has made a verbal commitment to the University of Louisville for the 2018-19 season.
“I am so excited to announce that I have decided to be part of University of Louisville’s swim team! I can’t wait to see what the next 4 years hold! Thank you to everyone who has helped me in the process, and GO CARDS!”
Wheeler swims for Louisville Collegiate School, where she is a senior, and Cardinal Aquatics. A USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, Wheeler is the reigning Kentucky High School State Champion in the 100 breast.

At Nationals and World Championships Trials this summer, she competed in the 50/100/200 breaststroke events, going a best time in the 50. At the end of the summer she notched PBs in the 100 back and 200 breast at U.S. Open.
