Double Legacy David Dixon Commits to Swim for West Virginia

David Dixon of Richmond, Virginia has verbally committed to swim for West Virginia University beginning in the fall of 2017. “I chose WVU in part because it’s where I was born, and it’s the school both of my parents went to. The scenery of the campus is gorgeous up in the mountains, and I got along well with the coaches and other swimmers.”

Dixon swims year-round for NOVA of Virginia Aquatics. He’s a true IMer who excels at every stroke, and in every distance. He has Juniors cuts or better in 100/200 breast, 100/200 fly, and 200/400 IM. In 2013, Dixon was a member of the NOVA quartet that broke the boys’ 13-14 national age group record in the 800 free relay.

Dixon had a stellar long course season this past summer. He went best times in the 50/100/200m breast, 50/100m fly, and 200/400m IM at the NCSA Summer Swimming Championships. He finished second in the 200m fly, and was an A finalist in the 50/100/200m breast, 100m fly, and 200m IM; he was a consolation finalist in the 50m back, 50m fly, and 400m IM.

His best short course times are:

  • 400 IM – 3:57.86
  • 200 IM – 1:50.89
  • 200 breast – 2:01.65
  • 100 breast – 56.71
  • 200 fly – 1:46.47
  • 100 fly – 49.01

Also joining the Mountaineers’ class of 2021 are verbal commits Max Gustafson and Philip Kay.

I see this kid hitting 1:43 in 200 fly his freshman year. Lots of potential and natural talent. Easily one of the better 200 flyers we’ll see out of this class. Scoring potential at NCAAs is a high probability for him in his first year. Great steal by the Mountaineers.
