NEW COMMIT: The University of Florida has picked up a new in-state verbal commitment for fall of 2021 from West Palm Beach’s Anna Auld. She will also join Mary Kate Kelley, Micayla CronkBrooke Zettel, and Georgia Bates in Gainesville as a member of the class of 2025.

Auld, who owns a pair of U.S. Open standards, does her club swimming with East Coast Aquatic Club. She placed eighth in the 1500m free and 16th in the 800m free this past summer at Junior Nationals after earning bronze in the 100m breast at Florida Gold Coast LCM Seniors. Last winter, she raced to 21st in the mile at Juniors East before going on to earn four gold medals at Florida Gold Coast SCY Seniors.

A current junior at Forest Hill High School, Auld is a six-time Florida 4A State Championship finalist. She placed second in the 500 free and took third in the 200 free as a junior after finishing third and sixth, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season. The two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American also placed sixth in the 200 free and fourth in the 500 free during her rookie campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so blessed to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at the University of Florida. I want to thank my amazing friends, family, Coach Alison and Coach John for their support over the years. I can’t wait to join an amazing team and become a Gator!!!”

Her best times include:

  • 500 free – 4:48.14
  • 1000 free – 10:19.45
  • 1650 free – 16:34.66
  • 200 breast – 2:17.81
  • 400 IM – 4:20.17

Auld will add valuable depth to Florida’s freestyle training group, even with nearly two years of club swimming still to go before suiting up for the Gators at the start of the 2021-22 season. She would’ve placed in the top-20 at the 2019 SEC Championships and is just shy of scoring range in the 500 free and 400 IM.
