IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa women’s swimming and diving team has signed TCU transfer Sheridan Schreiber as a graduate transfer, it was announced Wednesday by head coach Nathan Mundt. Schreiber will join the Hawkeyes for the 2022-23 season.
“We’re excited to have Sheridan join us next year,” said Mundt. “Her competitive experience and leadership will be a great addition to our team.”
Schreiber will be reunited with Iowa assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Mona Groteguth-Garcia, who was an assistant with the Horned Frogs from 2019-21.
“I chose the University of Iowa because of the coaching staff as well as the incredible facilities they have for the athletes,” said Schreiber. “I want to thank Mona and Nate for giving me this wonderful opportunity to swim a fifth year.”
Schreiber, a native of Cumming, Georgia, will make the move to Iowa City after finaling in three events at the 2022 Big 12 Championships. She finished 11th in the 100 breast (1:02.90) and 13th in both the 100 fly (56.28) and 200 breast (2:19.81).
Both breaststroke times would have led the Hawkeyes during the 2021-22 season, while her 100-fly time would have ranked second on the team.
Schreiber, who was an Olympics Trial qualifier in the 100-meter breast, was part of the school-record-setting 400-medley relay in 2021 and she posted an NCAA “B” qualifying time in the 100 breast.
During her first season in Fort Worth, she was a part of the bronze medal 200-medley and 400-medley relays. She was also an “A” finalist in the 100 breast, placing seventh with a 1:02.23, while being a “B” finalist in the 200 breast (2:17.13) and placing 10th in the 100 fly (55.50).
Schreiber began her career at Arizona State, where she was a “C” finalist in the 100 breast as a freshman at the Pac-12 Championships, placing 24th with a 1:02.35.
As a prep, Schreiber was an Iron Wolverine from 2015-17 and was an All-American in 2016. She set school records in the 100 breast, 100 fly and 200 IM and as part of the 200-medley, 200-free and 400-free relays. She finished in the top 16 at Winter Juniors and the top 32 at Summer Juniors. She was also an Academic All-American and a member of the National Honors Society.
Schreiber placed second in the 100 breast at States in 2016, third in 2015, fourth in 2017 and fifth in the 100 fly in 2017.
After competing with 13 student-athletes during the 2021-22 season, the Hawkeyes are retooling their roster. Schreiber will be one of 12 student-athletes, thus far, that will join the program next season.
