Jeffrey Pfannenstein Commits to Division I La Salle

Jeffrey Pfannenstein of Patriot High School and Nation’s Capital swim club will be swimming for NCAA Division I La Salle University in the upcoming season.

Pfannenstein is a versatile swimmer, and Explorers head coach Matt Nunnally will have the chance to use him in many different capacities.

His fastest 200 free time, 1:41.28, and his fastest 200 back time, 1:51.01, would have each earned him 16th place at this year’s Atlantic 10 Championships. None of his times would have been quite fast enough to make any of La Salle’s “A” relays, but a spot will be opening up on the 800 free relay when senior Stefan Sharpe graduates.

This past season, the La Salle men finished fourth at the A-10 Championships in Geneva, Ohio. The team had a dual record of 6-1, with wins against Villanova, Drexel, St. Bonaventure, George Mason, Fordham, and Loyala, and a single loss against the University of Pennsylvania.

Pfannenstein’s best short course yards times follow:

50 free: 22.07 100 back: 52.10 100 fly: 51.93 200 IM: 1:58.87
100 free: 47.36 200 back: 1:52.01 200 fly: 1:59.90 400 IM: 4:17.63
200 free: 1:41.28
500 free: 4:40.58
1000 free: 9:52.79
1650 free: 16:58.35

Congratulations Jeffrey. I had the pleasure of working with Jeffrey and his mom, Shannon with the college recruiting process. He will really shine in college. His coach Jeremy Linn has him ready for college swimming. La Salle will be a good fit for him, especially if they name Jamie Platt as the new head coach.
