Before Nebraska
Baxter dives on the one-meter and the three-meter. She participated in club diving and made it to the AAU Finals in both events during her first year competing. In her second year, she made the USA Diving Nationals and placed 18th in the one-meter dive.

The daughter of Steven and Sheila Baxter, Abby is from Dallas, Texas and was born on June 17, 2005. She has one brother, Ethan. "I chose Nebraska because I loved the team, coaches, and the business school is incredible,” Baxter said. “I believe Nebraska will be a home away from home where I will be able to grow academically and peak in my sport of diving.”
