Lancaster Aquatic Club’s Shelby Kahn is staying in-state with a verbal commitment to Penn State’s class of 2025. Kahn is a rising senior at Wilson High School.
I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic careers at Penn State University! I want to thank my parents and sister for always believing in me and my friends and coaches for pushing me in and out of the pool. I can’t wait to be a Nittany Lion! #weare

At the 2020 Pennsylvania (PIAA) 3A State Champs, just before COVID-19 shutdown swimming as we knew it in March, Kahn was the 200 free runner-up with a lifetime best 1:50.36. In the 500 free timed final, she clocked a 5:00.08 to take sixth, then jumped in for the 200 free relay and anchored Wilson’s fourth-place effort with a 23.49 split. To close the meet, Kahn split 51.81 to anchor their 400 free relay.
Kahn will get two seasons of overlap with both Margaret Markvardt (PSU’s top 200 IMer last season) and Abbie Amdor (PSU’s top 200 freestyler last season).
