Canadian Sprint Specialist Hannah Cornish to Minnesota for 2021-22

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Hannah Cornish from Port Perry, Ontario in Canada has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota for 2021-22. She will join Eliot Kennedy who has also made a commitment to the class of 2025.

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota to continue my academic and swimming career!  Thank you to all my friends, family and coaches for their support throughout this process.  Go Gophers!”

Cornish is a junior at Port Perry High School. She swims year-round with Uxbridge Swim Club/ Ontario Swimming Academy and specializes in sprint free, fly, back, and IM. She won the 100m free at the 2019 Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) championships in March, narrowly missing the OFSAA record. In club swimming, Cornish was an A-finalist in the 50 free (4th) and 100 free (6th) and a B finalist in the 100 fly and 200 IM at Canadian Junior Nationals in July. She swam the 50/100/200 free, 100 back, and 100 fly at Canadian Trials in April and finished 16th in the 50.

Cornish’s converted times would have scored at 2019 B1G Championships in the B final of the 50 free and the C final of the 100 free. She would have been just out of range in the 100 fly.

Best times LCM (converted to SCY):

  • 50m free – 26.16 (22.84)
  • 100m free – 57.71 (50.54)
  • 100m fly – 1:01.98 (54.57)
  • 100m back – 1:05.06 (57.53)
  • 200m IM – 2:21.95 (2:04.99)
