NEW COMMITMENT: The University of Cincinnati has started its second early oral engagement for the 2022-23 season and beyond Grace Gavin from St. John’s, Fla.

She will take part Abi Carroll from Heath, Texas as a member of the Bearcats’ Class of 2026.

Regarding her engagement, she said:

“I’m very excited to announce my oral commitment to swim and study at the University of Cincinnati! Forever grateful to my family, friends, Coach John von Loggerheads and Ms. Lori from ACC recruits for their support and care. I can’t wait for the next chapter! Go Bearcats !! 🖤❤️🐾 ”

Gavin swims with Loggerhead Aquatics at her club and has most recently competed in five events at NCSAs after putting in a strong performance at the 18 & U Winter Championships. She won the 50m back at the Florida Age Group Championships in the summer of 2019 before racing at Greensboro Futures.

Your best times are:

  • 50 back – 26.40
  • 100 back – 56.23
  • 200 back – 2: 03.31
  • 100 fly – 57.12
  • 200 fly – 2: 08.45
  • 50 free – 24.42
  • 100 free – 54.63
  • 200 free – 1: 56.98

Gavin is currently a junior at Creekside High School and finished fourth in the 100 and sixth in the 200 Free as a junior at the Florida 4A State Championships. She finished second and fifth, respectively, at those events at the FHSAA 4A Region 1 meeting the week before.

Gavin would have scored back in the B-final of the 100/200 and 100/200 flies at the 2021 American Athletic Conference Championships, where Cincinnati finished third overall in the team standings.
