Three elite high school swimmers from New York City’s Asphalt Green Unified Aquatics (AGUA) team committed to attending universities where they will compete in Division I swimming programs. Emily Weissman (about whom we have already written) of the Upper East Side will compete for the University of Miami. Ana Olszewski of the Lower East Side will represent the College of William and Mary. CJ Hinckley of the Upper East Side will swim at University of Pennsylvania*. Each swimmer proudly wore their future school’s attire at the ceremony, surrounded by friends and family.
Ana Olszewski, College of William and Mary
Olszewski specializes in the shorter end of the freestyle range. From the spring of her junior year through the fall of her senior year she has improved her times in the SCY 50/100/200/500 free and 100 back, and in the LCM 50/100/200 free and 50 fly. She achieved the LCM times at Metropolitan Swimming Senior Championships and at USA Swimming Futures this past summer.
Olszewski’s best SCY times are just a tad outside scoring range in the CAA, whose conference championship only scores an A final and a B final.
- 50 free – 24.23
- 100 free – 52.66
- 200 free – 1:54.08
- 500 free – 5:05.92
Olszewski will join Ellie Henry, Rebecca Rogers, Gabby Zhang, and Sonora Baker in the William and Mary class of 2022.
CJ Hinckley, University of Pennsylvania
Hinckley is a distance freestyler who has had an outstanding past six months. Beginning in July he updated his times in the LCM /200/400/800 free and SCY 50/100/200/500/1650 free, 50/100/200 back, 200 fly, and 100/200/400 IM.
Hinckley’s best SCY times would have scored at 2017 Ivy League Men’s Championship in the 1650 free (11th) and 1000 free (18th). His 100/200 back times would have placed him in the respective C finals, while his 500 free time is just out of scoring range.
- 500 free – 4:33.88
- 1000 free – 9:24.91
- 1650 free – 15:27.02
- 100 back – 52.15
- 200 back – 1:53.88
Hinckley will suit up for the Quakers with fellow class of 2022 verbal commits Zachariah Althoff, Jacob Furlong, and William Kamps.
