Winnetka, Illinois’ Charlie Scheinfeld has verbally committed to swim for the University of Texas, beginning with the 2018-19 season. Scheinfeld is currently a junior at New Trier High School, where he is the double defending Illinois state champion in the 100 breast.
At the 2017 IHSA Boys State Championship in February, Scheinfeld made it back-to-back state titles in the 100 breast by winning with a personal-best 54.63, half a body length ahead of the field. He also contributed an eighth place in the 100 free, a 24.58 breast split on New Trier’s winning 200 medley relay, and a 44.75 anchor on their state-champion 400 free relay.
Scheinfeld also swims for New Trier Swim Club. He competed at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials in the 100 breast, and was seventh in the 100 breast and 12th in the 200 breast at Summer Junior Nationals in August. Scheinfeld notched a slew of PBs in March at the NCSA Spring Championships. He was an A finalist in the 50/100/200 breaststrokes and helped the NTSC boys to a 14th-place team finish.
Scheinfeld’s top times include:
Scheinfeld will join Drew Kibler, who also verbally committed to the Longhorns’ class of 2022.
