Notre Dame Lands Another High End Verbal: SwimMAC’s Carolyn Kammeyer

The University of Notre Dame class of 2020 grew yet again with the verbal commitment of SwimMAC’s Carolyn Kammeyer. Kammeyer is a senior at Ardrey Kell High School and plans to study political science in South Bend, Indiana.

“Notre Dame has the perfect balance of academics and athletics where I know I’ll be successful. The university’s sense of community made me feel right at home, and I am honored to be a part of Notre Dame’s class of 2020!”

Kammeyer has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina for the past year and a half, where she swims for SwimMAC Carolina. She was runner-up in the 100 fly (55.91) at the 2015 North Carolina 4A Swimming and Diving Championships, and also led of Ardrey Kell’s 200 free relay and swam the fly leg on their 200 medley relay. As a sophomore, Kammeyer won the Missouri Girls State Swimming Championship title in the 100 fly (55.02), placed fourth in the 200 IM (2:09.27), and swam on Parkway West High School’s 200 medley and 400 free relays.

A Summer Juniors qualifier in the 100 and 200 butterfly distances, Kammeyer boasts the following times:

100 fly 55.02 1:01.74
200 fly 2:01.19 2:16.26
100 free 52.20 59.08
400 IM 4:26.16
100 back 57.39

The group of young women who have already made verbal commitments to the Fighting Irish was already impressive, and Kammeyer’s addition just adds to their collective pedigree.

Kammeyer will come in as the fastest butterflier so far in the class of 2020, although both Dolan and Lanigan are both 55-low-to-mids. While it remains to be seen whether or not the Fighting Irish can shake off Florida State in the middle of the pack and rise to challenge NC State and Louisville at ACC Championships, it is clear that South Bend will be an exciting place to swim over the next several years.
