2018-19 (Outlook)
After racing to one of the best seasons by a Husker swimmer in the past five years, 2018 NCAA Championship qualifier Autumn Haebig takes aim at even bigger accomplishments in 2019. The sophomore from Wisconsin qualified to compete in the 100 backstroke, 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle at the NCAA Championships. Haebig will shoot for top-eight finishes at the Big Ten Championships, after taking 10th in the 100 back and 12th in the 200 free at the conference meet as a freshman. Her career-best time of 42.29 in the 100 back on her way to victory at the NCAA Last Chance Meet qualified her for the national meet with the 29th-best time in the country.

2017-18 (Freshman)
Haebig had a stellar debut season as a Husker, producing 15 top-five finishes, including seven victories and four runner-up finishes. Haebig also became the first Husker swimmer to qualify for the NCAA Championships since 2013. At the 2018 Big Ten Championships, Haebig set career bests in the 200 free (1:46.22) and 500 free (4:42.69, school record). She added a 10th-place finish in the 100 back. The Wisconsin native tallied two additional career bests by pulling in a victory in the 100 back (52.29) at the Last Chance Meet and a 12th-place finish in the 200 back at the Mizzou Invite. The three-time NCAA qualifier also competed at the USA Winter Nationals compiling two top-10 finishes. An outstanding performer in the classroom and community as well, Haebig earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in both the fall and spring semesters. She was also a member of the 2018 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
