Roanoke, Virginia’s Keith Myburgh recently committed to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, also known as Virginia Tech, beginning in the fall of 2018.
“When I visited the campus, the staff and coaches made me feel right at home. I cannot wait to spend the next four years of my academic and athletic career as a HOKIE!”
Myburgh is a junior at Hidden Valley High School. He won the 200 IM (1:50.41) and 100 breast (56.35) at the 2017 VHSL 3A State Swimming & Diving Championships this past February, breaking Virginia 3A records in both events (he lowered his own mark in the breast). In 2016, as a sophomore, he won the same events with 1:51.69 and 56.51, respectively.
