The University of Evansville received a commitment from back and free sprint specialist Sam Leatherwood beginning in the 2019-2020 season.

As a senior at Milford High school, Sam competed at the 2019 Division I Ohio Southwest District Meet. He placed 11th in the 100 back (52.66) and he tied for 16th in the 200 free (1:46.87). He swam the backstroke lead off (24.15) for his team’s 200-medley relay which placed 3rd with a time of 1:33.47.
Sam recently competed at the 2019 Ohio MAKO Senior Circuit, where he placed 3rd in the 100 back (51.97). If he achieves his top times as a freshman, Sam will be the team’s 3rd fastest 100 backstroker behind Credence Pattinson and Brandt Hudson and the 2nd fastest in the 50 back behind Pattinson. The team – who is searching for a coach – placed 4th at the 2019 Mid-American Championships.
Evansville is currently without a head coach after the school split with head coach Brent Noble after just 1 season.
