Oregon 5A Record-holder Abby Maoz (2021) Sends Verbal to LSU

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Abby Maoz, a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Wilsonville, Oregon, has announced she intends to swim at Louisiana State University in the class of 2025. Maoz is a junior at Wilsonville High School; she swims year-round for Tigard Tualatin Swim Club.

“So beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Louisiana State University! I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing team! Thank you to my family, friends, and coaches who have been supporting me so much over the years! GEAUX TIGERS! 💛💜”

Maoz is a Summer Juniors qualifier in the 100 breast and a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 200 breast. She holds the Oregon 5A high school state record in the 100 breast, having gone 1:03.66 to win the event as a freshman in 2018. She repeated her state title at the 2019 OSAA 5A Swimming State Championships, clocking in at 1:04.29. She also came in 2nd in the 100 fly (59.10), swam on the 6th-place medley relay (29.60 breaststroke split), and anchored the 8th-place 400 free relays (only the top 6 places advance to finals in this meet). In club swimming, Maoz competed in the 100/200 breast at 2019 Speedo Junior Nationals and swam the 100 free in Time Trials where she notched a PB. In SCY, she went best times in the 50 free, 100/200 breast and 200 IM at Federal Way Sectionals last spring.

Top SCY times

  • 100 breast – 1:02.82
  • 200 breast – 2:17.49
  • 100 free – 53.12
  • 100 fly – 58.89
  • 200 IM – 2:10.84

Maoz is just outside scoring range at the conference level in her main events; it took 1:01.92/ 2:13.24 to get a second swim in the 100/200 breast at 2019 SEC Championships. Maoz will overlap with freshman Niamh Robinson, the top breaststroker for the Tigers so far this season.
