TOP TIMES (SCY)

  • 50 free – 23.10
  • 100 free – 49.97
  • 200 free – 1:51.37
  • 100 fly – 56.20
  • 100 back – 57.45

At the 2021 Texas HS 5A State Championships, Schellenger claimed the 100 free state title, adding a runner-up finish in the 50 free. She also finished top-five in both events in 2020 and 2019.

Texas’s sprint free group this past season was led by freshman Olivia Bray in the 50 (22.13) and sophomore Kelly Pash in the 100 (48.29). The Longhorns had seven women under 50 seconds in the 100 and five under 23 in the 50 free. At the 2021 NCAAs, the Texas women finished third, which was their first top-three finish since 2001.

Schellenger would’ve made the 2021 Big 12 Championships A-final in the 100 free and B-final in the 50 free.

Schellenger joins Meghan DiMartile, Chase DavisonLindsey Hosch, and Lydia Jacoby in Texas’s class of 2026. Jacoby, Hosch and Davison are all breaststrokers, while DiMartile is a backstroker, so this is the first pure freestyle sprinter in the class.
