Mizzou Dips Into the Austin Well Again; Gets Matthew Connealy Verbal

University of Missouri’s men’s team has drawn another Austinite out of Texas with the latest verbal commitment from Matthew Connealy. Connealy is the third swimmer from Austin (after Grant Reed and Ryan Geheb) and the second from Nitro Swimming (after Geheb) to declare his intention to suit up for the Tigers next fall. He will join the following commits in the Mizzou class of 2021:

The Lake Travis High School senior is primarily a sprinter, specializing in the 50/100/200 freestyles and the shorter back and fly events. Connealy’s short-course season culminated in a great showing at College Station Sectionals, where he finaled in the 50 free (9th), 100 free (5th), 200 free (8th), and 100 fly (15th), and swam prelims in the 500 free. He had another good meet at Austin Sectionals this past summer, where he lowered his PBs in the 50 free and 100 back.

His best SCY times include:

  • 50 free – 20.89
  • 100 free – 44.72
  • 200 free – 1:39.33
  • 100 back – 50.79
  • 100 fly – 49.63

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email to [email protected].

He will be in good hands. Coach Rhodenbaugh and his wife are people of strong faith.

Strong faith does not mean integrity or class.
