Taylor Seaman of Brighton, Michigan has made a verbal commitment to the application process at Brown University.* Seaman swims for Brighton High School and Club Wolverine.

Seaman is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American who specializes in sprint freestyle. She was runner-up in the 100 free and finished fourth (by just .01) in the 200 free at the 2015 MHSAA Division I State Meet, earning personal-bests in both events and a Winter Juniors cut in the 100. She also anchored both Brighton’s free relays (23.0 for the 4×50 and 50.8 for the 4×100).

Her top SCY times are:

  • 50 free – 23.70
  • 100 free – 50.87
  • 200 free – 1:51.07
  • 50 fly – 26.29
  • 100 fly – 58.88

Seaman had a very successful summer campaign, lowering her personal-bests in the 50/100/200m free and 100m back at the 2016 NCSA Summer Swimming Championships, and in the 200m back and 100m breast earlier in the summer.

Brown has a history of strong sprinters; their 4×50 free relay placed fourth at the 2016 Ivy League Women’s Championships and their 4×100 free relay came in third. Seaman will have the opportunity to replace Reia Tong, who graduated last year, on those relays. Individually she would have scored in the C finals of the 100 and 200 freestyle.

*IVY LEAGUE DISCLAIMER: A “verbal commitment” by a coach is not an offer of admission, as only the Admissions Office has that authority. An Ivy League coach can only commit his or her support in the admissions process.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email to [email protected].
