Hunter Cobleigh is a 6’2″ breaststroke specialist at the University of California, Berkeley. Originally from Thousand Oaks in sunny southern California, Cobleigh chose to make the move up north to swim for Cal. He had a breakout first season as a freshman and is currently in his sophomore year at Cal, but is still undecided on his major. He’s relatively new to swimming, considering that he joined the swim team his sophomore year of high school, but he improved quickly as an elite swimmer. After taking recruiting trips to schools including USC, UC Santa Barbara and Hawaii Cobleigh chose to attend Cal in the spring of his senior year. When looking forward to the season Cobleigh claims that he looks forward to the triple-distance meet against Stanford.
In his freshman season at Cal Cobleigh qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. He just missed the semi-final in the 100 breaststroke, but made big time drops to do so. He had the team’s second-best time in the 100 breaststroke, and the third-fastest time in the 200.
Cobleigh is in his second season at Cal.
Cobleigh was a two-time High School All-American and CIF Division I Southern Section Champion in the 100 breaststroke.
