Anne Deedy from Mission Hills, Kansas has announced her verbal commitment to swim and study at Georgia Institute of Technology in the class of 2026.
“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic careers at Georgia Institute of Technology! I want to thank everyone who has helped me through this process, especially my parents, family, friends, and coaches. Georgia Tech offered everything I was looking for in a school and I could not be more happy! Special thanks to Grandma Deedy and Grampy who were always so supportive of me and my swimming career. I know they are looking down at me smiling! GO JACKETS!! #togetherweswarm #buzzbuzz 🐝🐝”
Deedy is a junior at Shawnee Mission East High School where she is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and a Kansas High School 6A State Champion. As a freshman in the spring of 2019, she was runner-up in both the 200 IM (2:07.03) and 100 breast (1:05.31) and she contributed to the winning 200 medley relay (30.10 breaststroke leg) and 3rd-place 400 free relay (54.78 leadoff). The meet was canceled in 2020 but is expected to take place this year on May 21-22.
Deedy does her club swimming with Empire KC Swim Club in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. She is a Summer Juniors qualifier in the 200 breast (2:37.79 LCM) and a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 100 breast (1:13.59).
In February 2020, just before COVID-19 shut down the pools, Deedy achieved lifetime bests in the 50/200/500 free, 200 back, and 100/200 fly at the Missouri Valley LSC Short Course Championships. She was runner-up in both butterfly distances and finished 4th in the 200 back, 5th in the 500 free, 6th in the 200 free, and 7th in the 50 free.
In December at 2020 18&U Winter Championships, she notched PBs in the SCY 100 free, 200 breast, and 400 IM as well as the LCM 100 fly (1:04.50). Her best SCY 100 breast and 200 IM times date from 2019 Winter Juniors West. Deedy competed at 2020 U.S. Open in the 100/200m breast and most recently, she swam all the breast/fly/IM events at 2021 Jenks Sectionals. She earned a PB in the 200m fly.
