  • 200y breast – 2:14.36

Garfield is a breaststroke/IM specialist who won the Texas UIL 5A title in the 100 breast last year. She also competed in the 200 IM, finishing 2nd there.

Garfield is already on the cusp of scoring at the SEC Championships in multiple events. Last year, it took a 1:02.68 to score the C final in the 100 breast and a 2:14.28 in the 200 breast.

The Razorbacks’ top 200 breaststroker, Mary Soderberg, graduated last year. Garfield will still get a year to train with current juniors Sydney Angell and Madison Strathman— both women scored in the 100 breast C final last year at SECs.

Garfield will join sprinter Svea Torres and butterflier Erin McGuirt in Arkansas‘ class of 2022.
