Talyn Pierce from Newark High School in Newark, New York, has committed to attend Alfred University to swim and play lacrosse beginning in the fall of 2019.
“Alfred University is the perfect place for me as it is a great academic university and it allows me to continue my swimming and lacrosse careers. I’m excited to be going there and contributing to both teams.”
Pierce is a Section V Class B championship heat finalist in the 200 and 500 free just missing the state cut. With Victor Swim Club, he was a B-finalist at Niagara LSC Championships in both events, and he also scored in the top 16 in the 1650 free, 1000 free and 200 breast in March. His best times would have placed him in the B-final in the 200 and 500 free and the A-final in the 1650 at the Empire 8 Championships.
