Boston University Signs Rising Fly/IMer Alex Ewart of Eagle Swim Team

BostonU_m_Ewart familyAlex Ewart, a senior at Centennial High School in Howard County, Maryland, has signed an NLI to swim at Boston University in the fall.

Ewart swims under head coach Scott Ward at Eagle Swim Team in Owings Mills, Maryland, where he has made significant improvements over the last two years. These include:

Event 2014 2013 2012
200y fly 1:51.55 1:54.28 1:57.86
100y fly 51.19 51.56 53.37
200y IM 1:57.29 1:57.58 2:02.21
400y IM 4:04.46 4:09.22 4:18.22
200y free 1:44.44 1:45.77 1:51.91
500y free 4:44.02 4:53.85 4:59.85

He has had similar drops in long course:

Event 2014 2013 2012
200m fly 2:07.49 2:11.27 2:14.74
100m fly 57.98 58.28 1:01.04
200m IM 2:13.50 2:15.73 2:24.66

Ewart is a nice pick-up for the Terriers, who had a strong third-place showing at the 2014 Patriot League Championships. If he continues to make the kind of progress he’s been showing over the past two years he could help BU in their quest to move in on Navy and Army at the top of the standings.
