The Georgia Bulldogs have picked up their 4th verbal commitment for the women’s Class of 2023 from Marietta, Georgia’s Mady Bragg. Mady swims for Pope High School, where she is the reigning  6A individual champion in the 200 free (1:51.03) and 100 fly (55.89), as well as 2018 6A team champion. At the club level, Mady swims year-round for the Stingrays under Head Coach Ian Goss and will join fellow club teammate Josh Horne on the Bulldogs’ roster.

Mady is the second sister in the Bragg swimming family legacy, but the first to opt to continue competing at the collegiate level. Her older sister, Evie, is an Olympic Trials qualifier in the 200 IM and a Nationals qualifier in the 100 and 200m backstroke, but isn’t swimming in college at present. Her younger sister, Sarah, currently competes for the Stingrays.

Slight of build but heavy in range, Mady is reminiscent of Bulldog greats Hali Flickinger and Melanie Margalis. With another year of club and high school swimming to go, Mady already boasts 4 short course Winter Juniors cuts in 3 different strokes.  Her best times are:

Event SCY LCM
100 FR 50.77 58.74
200 FR 1:49.38 2:07.02
100 BK 56.27 1:05.22
200 BK 2:00.73 2:22.30
100 Fly 55.50 1:02.75
200 Fly 2:02.94 2:18.90

Mady announced her commitment to the Dawgs via her Instagram account:
