Texas 6A Finalist Carson Kaufmann Verbally Commits to Florida State

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.

Carson Kaufmann of Cypress, Texas has announced her verbal commitment to Florida State University’s class of 2024 where she’ll join Zsófia Kurdi of Hungary.

“I’m so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Florida State University!! Thank you to my family, friends & coaches who have helped me get to where I am. I can’t wait for the next 4 years as a Seminole!”

Kaufmann is a senior at Cypress Fairbanks High School. As a freshman she placed 8th in the 200 free and 8th in the 500 free at the 2017 Texas UIL 6A (largest schools) Swimming & Diving State Meet. The following year she won the consolation final in the 500. In club swimming, Kaufmann represents Cypress Fairbanks Swim Club. She had a strong summer season which culminated at Des Moines Futures with three top-8 finishes: 4th in the 1500 (17:22.86), 6th in the 400 free (4:23.64), and 7th in the 200 free (2:06.63). She also anchored the winning 800 free relay (2:06.05).

The Seminoles finished sixth of twelve teams at the 2019 ACC Championships. The FSU distance squad was led by then-freshmen Stephanie Holmes (12th in the 1650) and Laura Jensen (14th in the 200 free, 24th in the 500). Kaufmann is outside scoring range in the 200/500/1650 freestyles (it took 1:48.91/ 4:50.13/ 17:00.43 at the 2019 conference meet) but she did go a best time by 14.3 seconds in the 1500m free this summer at Futures.
