Ryan Foote, who hails from Spokane, Washington and swims for Spokane Waves Aquatic Team, has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Utah for 2019-20.
“Beyond blessed to have the opportunity to swim and study at Utah! So proud to be a Ute!”
Foote is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American with a Winter Nationals cut in the 100 breast (LCM) and a Winter Juniors cut in the 200 breast. He had a breakout season during his junior year in high school. In short-course season he had a big meet at Federal Way Sectionals in March, finaling in the 100/200 breast and 200 IM and earning PBs in the 50/100 free, 100/200 breast, and 200 IM. This summer he did even better at Mt. Hood Sectionals, dropping 3 seconds in the 100 breast to finish 6th with a Winter Nationals time standard. He was also 12th in the 200 breast and 22nd in the 400 IM, finishing the meet with PBs in the 50 free, 50/100 back, 100/200 breast, and 200/400 IM.
Top SCY times:
- 200 breast – 2:03.90
- 100 breast – 57.32
- 400 IM – 4:07.77
- 200 IM – 1:54.28
The Utes brought in a pair of breaststrokers this year: Harrison Wayner and Andrew Britton. Junior Brody Lewis is the highest-scoring returning breaststroker from last season.
