Grace Haskett, a junior at Bloomington South High School, made a verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University under head coach Ray Looze this past November; she will begin in the fall of 2017 with the rest of the class of 2021.
“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University. The team and coaches there are great and I can’t wait to start my next chapter at such a great program that Ray and the coaches have built. It marks a special day for me and IU as I became their youngest to give my verbal commit to IU swimming, I would like to thank all that was involved in helping with this process as well as all the coaches I have had in the past to help develop me over the years and to my family who helped me get to all the places I needed to be.” “Let’s go Hoosiers!”
Haskett began her high school career at Columbus North but transferred to Bloomington South to be closer to home. She was required to sit out a year but will compete for Bloomington South next winter. Haskett participated in the 2015 IHSAA Swimming State Championships, placing third in the 100 backstroke (55.29) and fifth in the 50 free (23.48). She also led off both the 200 medley relay (25.19) and 400 free relay (52.23).
Haskett is a 2016 Olympic Trials qualifier in the 100 meter back. She has notched lifetime LCM bests in the 50/100 freestyles and 100/200 backstrokes so far this spring. Her best times include:
Haskett’s top times would place her in the B final of the 100 back and C final of the 50 free at B1G Championships. The Hoosiers were runners-up to Michigan at the 2016 conference championships.
