Donald was the 50 free runner-up at the 2019 Iowa HS State Championships a year ago, while she touched fourth in the 100 breast, too. She also led off Ames’ title-winning 200 free relay (23.70) and anchored their runner-up 200 medley relay (23.03).

A month after that meet, Donald raced at the 2019 Speedo Winter Junior Championships – West, where she hit a 23.46 in the 50 and finished 33rd overall. Most of her current bests came from the 2020 Iowa Senior Champs in March, where she won LSC titles in the 50 free (23.12) and 100 free (50.83).

Junior Kylee Alons leads the NC State women in sprint free; she went 21.63 in the 50 free and 47.73 in the 100 last season, and she won the 2020 ACC title in the 50.

The Wolfpack women are heating up on commitments for their 2026 class; Donald joins Katherine Helms, Emma HastingsGrace Monahan, and #9 Kennedy Noble.
