Connor Anderson, who swims for Utah Valley Aquatics in Provo, has made a verbal commitment to the Brigham Young University Cougars for 2015-16.
Anderson is a national-level freestyler. Although he has a wide range, his sweet spot is in the mid-distance events. Anderson’s best times over the last two seasons are:
|50y free: 21.91||50m free: 24.96|
|100y free: 47.10||100m free: 53.32|
|200y free: 1:40.72||200m free: 1:54.97|
|500y free: 4:31.66||400m free: 4:06.76|
|1000y free: 9:25.30||800m free: 8:36.31|
|1650y free: 16:19.40||1500m free: 16:48.84|
Swimming for Springville High School at the 2014 Utah High School 4A State Championships, Anderson won the 500 free and was runner-up in the 200 free. He also anchored Springville’s 200 free relay with a 21.2, and the 400 free relay with a 46.2.
Anderson will be an asset to the Cougars in the expanded Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference championships. With UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly men’s teams out of the Pac-12 and now joining their women’s teams in the MPSF, the Cougars will face much stiffer competition. Anderson and fellow commit Ryan Sorensen will be welcomed additions to the BYU roster.
