Zachary Washart, who attends St. Augustine Preparatory School in Richland, New Jersey, has given his verbal commitment to swim for the Duke men’s team as part of the Class of 2021.

Washart’s commitment was announced via the St. Augustine Hermits’ Twitter account:

At the club level, Washart swims for the Greater Philadelphia Aquatic Club. He has 4 winter juniors cuts (500 yard free, 1650 free, 800 meter free and 200 meter back), 3 summer juniors cuts (1000 yard free, 200 meter free and 400 meter free), and a U.S. Open cut in the 1500 meter free.

His best times are:

Event  SCY LCM
200 Free  1:43.23  1:54.32
500 Free  4:32.19  4:01.94
1000 Free  9:11.37  8:31.38
1650 Free  15:45.24  15:57.18
400 IM  4:06.27  4:44.17

Washart’s best times would have ranked him third in the 1000 and 1650 free, and fourth in the 500 free, on Duke’s list of top men’s performers for the 2015-2016 season. His current best times would have been outside of scoring range at the 2016 ACC Championships, but he still has a year of high school training to lower his marks.

Washart joins Nathaniel Hartley and Adam Zimmer as part of the Duke men’s team Class of 2021.
