Miami (OH) Gets a Verbal From Fishers Freestyler Elisabeth Peskin

Elisabeth Peskin of the Fishers Area Swimming Tigers (FAST) and Fishers High School has verbally committed to the University of Miami (OH).

“I chose Miami because it felt like a home away from home. It’s a great fit for me academically, the campus is beautiful, and the team and coaching staff made it even better. I know I can accomplish my goals in and out of the water at Miami and couldn’t be happier to be a RedHawk!”

Peskin’s Top Times

200 free – 1:56.07/2:13.40
500/400 free – 5:06.23/4:35.10
1000/800 free – 10:31.81/9:18.89
1650/1500 free – 17:23.68/17:46.98

Peskin would’ve been 5th on Miami’s top times list in the 1000 last year, as well as 6th in the mile and 10th in the 500. The RedHawks top distance freestyler graduated after this past season, and there are no distance freshmen this year (according to Miami’s roster), so Peskin will be a much-needed addition to Miami’s roster.

It took a 17:05 to score in the mile last year at the MAC Championships, which would be Peskin’s best bet to earn points next season. She’s lopped off 58 seconds and some change from her mile time since her freshman year of high school, and it looks as though she has more to go after a strong summer in long course.

Peskin joins Carolyn Jungers and Claire Doerr in Miami’s class of 2020.
