Virginia Beach native Alex Neff has announced his verbal commitment to Virginia Tech for 2020-21.
“I’m excited to announce my verbal commitment to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University! I am super happy that I will be continuing my academic and swimming career at Virginia Tech! I would like to give a special thanks to my family, coaches, and friends for helping me. I cannot wait to spend my next years of my life being a Hokie! 💪🏼#GOHOKIES”
Neff is a senior at Landstown High School; he swims year-round for Tide Swim Team. He placed 3rd in the 200 IM (1:53.29) at 2019 Virginia VHSL Class 6 State Meet in February, .03 out of first place in a race in which 1st and 4th were only separated by .10. He was also 9th in the 100 back (52.40). This summer he swam the 100/200m fly at Speedo Junior Nationals. In the 200, he dropped 2.4 seconds from his seed time in prelims to qualify 9th for finals with 2:02.65, then finished 13th with 2:02.91. His best LCM 100 fly time (57.31) came two weeks earlier at Virginia LSC Senior Long Course Championships. Last December, He competed in the 100/200 fly and 200 IM at Winter Juniors East. He went best times in all three events, plus the 50/100 back and 200 free.
