A multiple event finalist at the 2022 Colorado Girls 5A Swimming and Diving State Championships, Abbie Kehmeier has announced that she will be coming to the Big-10 in the fall of 2023, committing to swim at Purdue University. Kehmeier is currently in her junior year at Legacy High School in Broomfield, Colorado and does her club swimming with the Front Range Barracudas.
“It is with great gratitude and excitement that I announce my verbal commitment to further my athletic and academic career at Purdue University! A HUGE thanks to my family, friends, coaches, and teammates for supporting me on this journey. Couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter. BOILER UP!!🚂🚂”

The Purdue women finished in the middle of the pack at the 2022 Big-10 Swimming and Diving Championships, taking 7th out of 12 teams. The team was led in both the 50 and 100 freestyles by freshman Hannah Hill, who finished just outside the top-24 in both events. She also held the team’s third best time in the 100 back behind sophomore Abigail Harter and junior Kat Mueller. Kehmeier will have two years of overlap with Hill and one year of overlap with Harter.
With a year and a half left to improve prior to arriving on campus, Kehmeier will likely contribute to the Boilermakers immediately after arriving on campus in 2023. In 2022, her time in the 50 free would have ranked her 9th on the Purdue roster, less than three tenths of a second off of the team’s top-4. She would have been an even bigger contributor in the backstroke events, with her lifetime bests being good enough to have been the team’s second best time’s last season. She would have narrowly missed earning a second swim in both backstroke races at the 2022 Big-10 Championships.
