Campbell University swimming junior Maddie Baiotto was named to the 2018-19 Google Cloud Academic All-District 3 Division I At-Large First Team, as selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Baiotto, a biology pre-physical therapy major, has maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA through her first three years at Campbell. She also serves as the community service representative liaison for Campbell’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and has been integral in recruiting volunteers for community service activities.
In February, she earned the 2019 Campbell University President’s Heritage Award. The award is bestowed upon a student who “exemplifies leadership attributes of each of Campbell’s exceptional presidents and who shares a sincere passion for Campbell University and her unique mission.”
The Swansboro High School product holds the school records in the 50-meter fly (25.03) and 100-meter fly (54.83). Additionally, she is part of the 200-meter medley relay (1:42.17) and 400-meter medley relay (3:44.98) squads that own program records.
This past season, she finished in the CCSA Championship’s fast heat in two events, placing in the A-Final in the 50-meter freestyle (ninth place, 23.61) and 100-meter fly (seventh place, 54.86).
On Feb. 23 at CCSA Championships, Baiotto set a new school record in the 100 fly, posting a time of 54.83 in the prelims, surpassing her previous program record by 0.15 seconds. She finished seventh in the finals. Additionally, she helped Campbell’s 400-medley relay squad earn bronze in the finals.
She is the third Campbell student-athlete to be named Academic All-District (which includes Division I schools in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia) this year by CoSIDA. Dustin Werner (men’s tennnis) and Gideon Betz (men’s soccer) were also named to the all-district teams in 2018-19.
At least one Campbell student-athlete from the program’s 21 varsity sports has earned Academic All-District in each of the last 25 years.
