NCAP’s Jasmine Hellmer Verbally Commits to Northwestern University

Jasmine Hellmer, a rising senior at Flint Hill School, has verbally committed to swim for Northwestern University’s class of 2022.

“At Northwestern, I was impressed by the academics, the opportunities outside of the classroom, the coaches and the direction in which the women’s team is headed.  I would like to thank my parents, my coach, my friends and all of the college coaches and swimmers who were part of this journey – I really appreciate your support and advice!! I can’t wait to be a part of what lies ahead for the Wildcats!”

Hellmer moved to Virginia from Wisconsin in the summer of 2013 and has swum for Nation’s Capital Swim Club ever since. As a junior at Flint Hill, she won both the 200 IM (2:02.13) and the 100 free (50.56) at the 2017 VISAA Swimming & Diving Championship. She anchored Flint Hill’s runner-up 200 free relay in 23.07 and split 51.09 on their fifth-place 400 free relay. At Washington Metros (2017 WMPSSDL Championships) she won the 100 fly (54.38, 1/100 off her 2016 meet record) and was runner-up in the 50 free (23.52). Her 23.03 anchor helped Flint Hill win the 200 free relay title and her 50.79 anchor propelled their 400 free relay to third. In 2016 she had been runner-up in both the 200 IM and 100 fly at VISAA Champs, and had won the 100 fly (meet record) and 100 back at Metros.

In club swimming, the USA Swimming Scholastic All-American competed at 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the 100m fly. She swam the 50/100/200 free and 50/100/200 fly at 2017 NCSA Spring Junior National Championship, and the 50/100/200 free, 200 fly, and 200 IM at the Potomac Valley Long Course Senior Championships in July.

Top times:

  • 50 free – 23.27 (26.78 LCM)
  • 100 free – 50.56 (57.80 LCM)
  • 100 fly – 53.51 (1:00.76 LCM)
  • 200 fly – 1:59.89 (2:16.22 LCM)
  • 200 IM – 2:01.47 (2:19.93 LCM)

Hellmer will join fellow commit Emma Theobald at Northwestern in the fall of 2018.
