Andy Song An, who represented the Mexican National Team at both Junior Pan Pacs in 2014 and at Pan Ams in Toronto this past summer, has added his name to the star-studded class of 2020 of the University of California, Berkeley.

Song was born in China but moved to Mexico when he was an infant. He grew up swimming in Mexico and moved to Jacksonville, Florida at the beginning of his sophomore year in high school. Song swims for Bolles School, as well as Bolles School Sharks. At the recent 2015 FHSAA Class 1A Championship, Song won the 100 back (47.58) and was runner-up in the 200 free (1:38.17). He led off Bolles’ 200 medley relay in 22.57 and 44.86 on the Bulldogs’ 400 free relay.
Song was an A finalist in both the 100m and 200m backstrokes at Junior Pan Pacs, and a B finalist in the 200m back at the Pan American Games. His best times are:
When Song steps onto the Berkeley campus in the fall of 2016, he will be in one of the most elite backstroke groups anywhere, with Ryan Murphy, who will be a senior, Connor Green, a junior, David Puczkowski, a sophomore, and fellow incoming freshman Ethan Young, amongst others.
