Harrison Wayner, a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American at Savannah Arts Academy in Savannah, Georgia, has made a verbal commitment to swim at the University of Utah beginning in the fall of 2018. His sister Darby Wayner is currently a junior swimming for the Utes, so they will have a year of overlap.
“I am excited to announce that I have verbally committed to swim at the University of Utah! I would like to thank my family, coaches and friends for helping me get to this point in my swimming career. I can’t wait to see what I will accomplish at Utah in the next four years. Go Utes!”
Wayner represents Savannah Arts Academy in high school season and does his year-round swimming with Georgia Coastal Aquatic Team. He had a breakthrough junior year, dropping massive amounts of time in both short-course and long-course seasons. At the 2017 GHSA 1-5A State Swimming & Diving Meet, he placed 9th in the 200 IM (1:59.01) and 6th in the 100 breast (58.54), a year after not qualifying in the IM and finishing 16th in the breast (1:00.44). This summer, between Sectionals and Futures, he threw down some big swims to finish with Summer Juniors cuts in the 100/200 breaststrokes.
His best times, with year-over-year progressions, are:
|Spring 2016||Spring 2017|
|Summer 2016||Summer 2017|
Wayner is the USA Swimming Senior Athlete Representative for Georgia Swimming. He will join Cole Giandinoto in the University of Utah class of 2022.
