55.4 100 Butterflier Cassie Phillips Gives Verbal To Incarnate Word

The University of Incarnate Word will be getting a new addition to its butterfly group next season, as Cassie Phillips has just given her verbal commitment to join the women next fall. Phillips is currently a senior at Round Rock High School and trains club with the Aquatex Swim Team.

Phillips has qualified to compete at the Texas 6A State Meet every season since she started as a freshman at Round Rock, where she’s now a team captain. Most recently, she was a finalist in the 100 fly at the 2015 meet as a junior. She swam her personal best 55.42 in the 100 fly at that meet to finish 6th overall. Following her performances in the 2015-16 season, Phillips was named a NISCA All-American.

Phillips’ Top Times:

  • 100 fly- 55.42
  • 200 fly- 2:04.55
  • 50 free- 24.24
  • 100 free- 52.83

When she arrives at UIW, Phillips should have an immediate scoring impact for the team at the CCSA Championships. Her best time in the 100 fly is already fast enough to have qualified for the championship final at the conference meet last season. Additionally, she’s already fast enough to have scored in the B-final of the 200 fly and the C-final of the 100 free.

The University of Incarnate Word is getting a great kid, and a very talented swimmer with high ceiling. We watched Cassie swim since she was 9 in our summer league swim team, some years being a swim buddy to our youngest daughter and sometimes showering her after meets. Before she leaves for college, Cassie will lead Round Rock High School team (and our freshman son) to District Championship in January, after years of Westwood HS domination. Pay back time!

Good luck, Cassie.

Go Dragons!
