Nation’s Capital Swim Club’s Julia Capobianco has verbally committed to swim for the Delaware Blue Hens next season, bringing an instant point-scoring threat to the CAA program.
Capobianco is part of the NCAP program that has become a national powerhouse over the past few years, and looks like an instant-impact addition for Delaware.
She’s best as a butterflyer, but also brings a very good 100 back to the table, which makes three solid events if she can pull the 100 back/100 fly double on the second day of the college championship meet order.
Capobianco’s Top Times
- 100 fly: 56.12
- 200 fly: 2:07.45
- 100 back: 57.26
Both of those butterfly times would have scored at last year’s CAA Championships, and with a little more development, Capobianco could turn out to be a perennial conference finalist for the Blue Hens. That’s a big pickup for a team that graduated both of its point-scoring butterflyers from last season.
Capobianco also swims for the dominant Oakton High School program that has won three straight Virginia 6A high school state titles.
