Vols Get 1st Class of 2018 Verbal Commitment from Versatile Hannah Foster

Cincinnati, Ohio’s Hannah Foster has made a verbal commitment to swim for the University of Tennessee beginning with the 2018-19 season. Foster is currently a junior at St. Ursula Academy. She swims year-round for Mason Manta Rays. Foster announced via her Twitter account:

“I am so extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at the University of Tennessee. I would never be here without the best family, coaches, and friends who have been with me through it all. I also want to thank Coach Kredich and his staff for giving me the opportunity to represent Tennessee on the next level of my swimming. I had the opportunity to visit many schools on unofficial visits, and I chose Tennessee because of the Coaches, TEAM, and program vision. Go Vols!”

Foster has a wide range of talents in the pool. As a freshman at St. Ursula’s she swam the 50 free and 100 free, placing third in each, at the 2015 OHSAA Division I Swimming & Diving State Tournament. The following year she competed in the 200 IM (runner-up) and 100 free (fourth).

Swimming for Mason Manta Rays, Foster placed 8th in the 200 free at 2016 Winter Juniors East. She was also a finalist in the 100 free (18th) and 200 IM (11th). Most recently she won the 200 IM, was runner-up in the 200 free, and third in the 50 free, 100 free, and 100 breast at the 2017 Dolfin ISCA Junior Championship Cup. Her top times include:

  • 200 IM – 1:59.32
  • 400 IM – 4:17.67
  • 200 free – 1:47.49
  • 100 free – 49.95
  • 50 free – 23.14
  • 100 breast – 1:03.17
  • 100 back – 56.00

I presume that Hannah, coming from Ohio, is the sister of Jake and Carson (remember, Carson broke Michael Phelps’ 10 and under 100 fly NAG record). Great swimming family.

And the labrador on the left reminds me too much of my own labrador. He looked the same and passed away almost 8 years ago. I loved him so much. 😥

Easy to remember the name of Carson Foster. It’s not so often that a record held by MP is broken. 🙂
