“I am so excited and grateful to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Stanford University!! Thank you to everyone who has helped me over the past 17 years on my swimming and academic journey. I could not have done this without the love and support from my family, coaches, teammates, teachers, and friends. I can’t wait to continue my athletic and academic pursuits at the farm 🌲 ❤️ ! #fearthetree”
Duncan is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Holton-Arms School in Bethesda. She swims year-round with Nation’s Capital Swim Club and competed in the 200/400 IM at Olympic Trials Wave II, placing 30th in each. In SCY, she is a sub-4:10/sub-2:00 IMer who has dropped about 5 seconds in the 400 since last spring. She is also strong in the 200 back, 200 fly, and 200/500/1650 free. Her range, as well as her 400 IM time that would already score at NCAAs (it took 4:09.81 to make it back to the B final at the 2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships), made her our #17 recruit from the high school class of 2022.
In high school swimming, Duncan was runner-up in both the 500 free (4:51.37) and 200 IM (2:00.43) as a sophomore at the 2020 Washington Metros, and in the 200 free (1:50.63) and 500 free (4:55.31) as a freshman in 2019.
Duncan would have been Stanford’s third-fastest 400 IM in the 2020-21 season behind Brooke Forde and Hannah Kukurugya, both of whom are graduating seniors. She will join Janelle Rudolph in the IM group and Isabel Gormley in distance freestyle. Duncan is not far off scoring at NCAAs in the 500 free (4:43.16) and has a little way to go in the 1650 free (16:13.59), 200 IM (it took 1:57.13), 200 back (1:53.67) and 200 fly (1:55.60).
