Red Bank Breaststroker Ben Dupree Commits to William & Mary (2021)

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Red Bank YMCA’s Ben Dupree has committed to William & Mary’s class of 2025. He’s a senior at Christian Brothers Academy in New Jersey and will join the Tribe this fall.

Beyond proud to announce my commitment to swim and study at the College of William and Mary! Thank you to Coach Nate, my friends, family, and coaches who got me to this point. ROLL TRIBE!


  • 100 breast – 56.63
  • 200 breast – 2:05.18
  • 200 IM – 1:54.89

At the 2020 New Jersey Meet of Champions, Dupree swam to a sixth-place finish in the 100 breast. In 2019, he made finals at both short course and long course YMCA nationals, making the 200 breast C-final at the SCY meet and the 100 breast C-final at the LCM meet.

The William & Mary men finished fourth of five teams at the 2021 CAA Championships, but they had won six CAA titles straight before this season, which was marred by a program cut and then, later on, a reinstatement. At the 2021 CAA Champs, Dupree would’ve scored in both breaststroke event B-finals, and he would’ve been the Tribe’s #2 100 breaststroker all season.

Dupree joins Noah Spain, Sam Parsons and Micah Lowe in William & Mary’s incoming class.
