Joshua He has opted to remain in his hometown of San Diego, California to swim for the UCSD Tritons in 2019-20.
“I am very excited to announce my commitment to the University of California San Diego. I am thankful for all that have supported me through this process and I’m very glad to have found my “new” home. The incredible academics program combined with coach David Marsh and Marko Djordjevic’s swim program has made me feel comfortable to join them and start a new chapter in my life. Go Tritons!”
He is a senior at Cathedral Catholic High School, the 2018 CIF San Diego Section Division II Boys champions. He contributed a pair of individual victories in the 200 IM (1:52.39) and 100 breast (57.04) as well as stints on the winning 200 medley relay (25.81 breaststroke split) and runner-up 400 free relay (46.36 anchor).
