Lexie Mulvihill Remains With Auburn After Initial Release From NLI

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.

Despite being released from her National Letter of Intent (NLI) in the spring, Lexie Mulvihill will remain at Auburn University and begin her collegiate career there for the 2021-22 NCAA season.

Mulvihill, who was Auburn’s first verbal commitment from the high school class of 2021 back in September 2019, was released from her NLI in late April, along with fellow recruit Abby McCulloh, after it was learned that Gary Taylor would be leaving the program after three years as head coach.

Just a few days after Taylor’s departure was reported, the Tigers announced that Ryan Wochomurka would be taking over the program as head coach after six seasons at the University of Houston.

On keeping Mulvihill in the fold, Wochomurka told SwimSwam: “We are excited to welcome Lexie to our Auburn Swimming & Diving Family with our other incoming freshmen.”

A native of Lutz, Florida, who swam for Tampa Elite Aquatics and George Steinbrenner High School, Mulvihill boasts lifetime bests of 22.22, 49.35 and 1:49.36 in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle (SCY), improving all three since her time of commitment (22.8/50.0/1:51.0).

Her PBs in the 50 and 100 free are both faster than any woman on Auburn’s 2020-21 roster went last season.

Mulvihill joins a solid freshman class for the Tigers that includes our 14th-ranked recruit Rebekah Hamilton and #19 Ellie Waldrep.

McCulloh announced she was changing commitments to the University of Georgia in mid-May.
