Versatile Mykala Arnold of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Signs with Georgia Southern

Mykala Arnold has signed an NLI to swim with the Georgia Southern Eagles beginning with the 2015-16 season. Arnold is from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and attends Seaholm High School.

Arnold recently competed at the 2014 MHSAA Girls D2 State Championships where she placed fifth in the 100 free (51.52) and fourth in the 100 back (56.46 in prelims). She also led off Seaholm’s state-champion 200 medley relay (26.36 prelims) and swam on the 400 free relay (51.72).

She also swims for Motor City Aquatics where her best events are:

50y back: 27.36
100y back: 56.46
50y fly: 25.78
100y fly: 56.32
200y IM: 2:05.88
50y free: 24.18
100y free: 51.52
200y free: 1:51.73

Arnold will be a versatile addition to the Eagles’ squad. She should be able to fill in just about anywhere –and score– at conference. At the 2014 CCSA championships, her 100 fly time would have made Arnold the top Eagle in the A-final, while her 200 IM and 100 back would have been right at the A/B-final cutoff. She also would have scored with her 100 free and 200 free in the B-final.
