Alexandra Fabbri Verbally Commits To Villanova Wildcats

Alexandra Fabbri, a senior at Villa Joseph Marie High School in Churchville, Pennsylvania, has verbally committed to swim for Villanova University, for the 2015-2016 season. She will stay close to home, joining their roster next fall. “Proud to say I have verbally committed to Villanova University and will pursue the next 4 years of swimming at the D1 level,” she tweeted.

Fabbri swims for Tri-Hampton Family Branch YMCA, specializing in sprint and mid-distance freestyle, as well as sprint fly and backstroke. As a junior, she placed third in the 100 Free at the 2014 Pennsylvania AA High School State Championships. At the 2013 Winter Junior Nationals, she placed 45th in the 50 Free, 97th in the 100 Fly, 107th in the 200 Free, 148th in the 100 Back, and 86th in the 100 Free. This summer, she placed eighth in the 100 Fly, 14th in the 50 Free, 32nd in the 200 Free, and seventh in the 100 Free at the YMCA Long Course National Championships.

Fabbri’s Best Times

(SCY/LCM)

50 Free: 23.43/26.50

100 Free: 50.63/57.80

She Is Still Improving

Most of Fabbri’s short course best times were achieved as a junior, as were her long course best times, which is a good sign heading into her senior season. As a freshman at Villanova, Fabbri will have an immediate impact on the Wildcats. Currently, she would be able to score in the A Final of the 50 Free, 100 Free, 200 Free, 100 Back, 200 I.M., and 100 Fly at the Big East Championships. Fabbri will also be able to contribute in the 200 and 400 Medley Relay, as well as the 200, 400, and 800 Freestyle Relay. She will score a lot of points for Villanova and perhaps win an individual event at her first Big East Championships.
