2020’s Adair Sand Makes Verbal Commitment to Arizona State

Jacksonville, Florida’s Adair Sand has verbally committed to Arizona State University for the fall of 2020. Sand is a junior at The Bolles School and swims year-round for Bolles School Sharks. At last weekend’s Florida FHSAA Class 1A State Meet she finished 3rd in a tight 100 free final, going 49.90 (after having swum a PB of 49.68 in prelims). She also finished 4th in the 100 back (55.80, 55.73 in prelims), anchored the winning 400 free relay (49.9) and swam a leg on the runner-up 200 free relay (23.3).

“I am thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Arizona State University! I really felt at home with the team atmosphere, along with the amazing coaching staff was something I could not pass up. I am honored to be joining the Sun Devil family. Forks Up!”

In club swimming Sand extends her range to include longer back, longer free, and IM. She is a U.S. Open qualifier in the 200 back and 100 free and a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 200 free, 100 back, and 400 IM. This summer at Speedo Junior Nationals she competed in the 100/200 back and 200 IM and she time-trialed the 200/400 free. She improved her lifetime bests in the 200/400 free and 100 back at the meet.

  • 200 back – 1:59.25

The Truth Will Set You Free

Especially being a sprinter. ASU is not a sprint program, especially for women. The top sprinter from last season, Claire Fisch, transferred to Auburn and she is on fire.

Adair can swim anything….sprint, mid, long. She has natural talent and is a fierce competitor. Congrats, Adair. You’re a star and will be an asset to any program.

She transferred before she ever got there! She just changed her commitment to USC.
