He also anchored Detroit Country Day’s 200 medley relay in a 20.58. The 2020 State Meet was canceled due to COVID-19 last March, but the 2021 meet is scheduled for March 26-27.

The last focus meet for Ryan was the 2020 U.S. Open in November, where he clocked lifetime bests in long course in the 50m free (23.95) and 100m breast (1:04.87).

VT’s sprint free group has had five men under 20 seconds in the 50 free and two under 43 in the 100 this season, led by freshman Youssef Ramadan in both (19.1/42.2).

The H2okies have had a strong recruiting year, already picking up verbals from Luis Domínguez, Nikolas Lee-BishopLuan GrobbelaarJoseph HongHayden Jay, and Ben Eckerson.
