Olivia Carter has announced via social media that she will swim for the University of Georgia beginning with the 2018-19 season. Carter hails from Jamestown, North Carolina, where she is homeschooled and a USA Swimming Scholastic All-America Team member.

Carter swims for Enfinity Aquatic Club, specializing in butterfly. She competed at 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the 100m fly and 200m fly. Six months later she was crowned Winter Junior Nationals East champion in the 200y fly (1:55.78). She was also runner-up in the 100 fly, finished in the top 8 of the 100 back and 200 back, and won the consolation in the 200 IM.

Her top SCY times are:

  • 200 back – 1:55.78
  • 100 fly – 52.65
