Alexander Lewis Brings Some Versatile Speed to Princeton Recruiting Class

Alexander Lewis from the Greenwich YWCA Dolphins Swim Team in Connecticut has verbally committed to swim for the Princeton Tigers, pending the completion of the admissions process, which gives them a versatile speed threat for the next four years.

“I am really excited about the opportunity I have to attend such a great school and swim for Rob Orr and Mitch Dalton,” Lewis said of his future coaches.

Lewis has bests of:

  • 50 yard free – 20.90
  • 100 yard free – 45.59
  • 100 yard back – 49.88
  • 200 yard back – 1:49.39
  • 100 yard fly – 49.86

The Princeton men are the five-time Ivy League Champions, and after graduating a class that was perfect in their careers in the summer of 2012, a notably younger group won the 5th of those titles last year. In other words: Princeton has been able to get their team up to speed in a hurry.

Lewis will be no exception, and Princeton will be hoping to get at least a few NCAA points from him as a freshman, with a significant impact likely coming by the time he’s a sophomore in the 2015-2016 season.

Lewis swims under Nick Cavarato at the Greenwich Y, as well as at Greenwich High School.
