Durocher is primarily a backstroker, and he hit lifetime bests in both backstroke events at the 2020 Winter 18 & Under Championships. He’s improved a ton since the pandemic; before March 2020, his lifetime bests were 52.05/1:54.74 in back and 53.81/2:01.57 in fly.

George Mason just graduated Logan Eubanks, the 2020 Atlantic-10 100 back champion (46.65), and Ryan Donnelly, the 2020 Atlantic-10 200 back champion (1:44.08). Durocher comes in with a 200 back time that would’ve made the A-final at the 2020 A-10 Championships, where George Mason won the team title.

Durocher joins Alexander Franklin in George Mason’s class of 2021.
