Yale Gets Verbal Commitment from Tyler Harmon of Zionsville Swim Club

Zionsville Swim Club’s Tyler Harmon has verbally committed to the application process at Yale University*. Harmon is a senior at Zionsville Community High School in Zionsville, Indiana. He is the reigning Indiana High School 100 back champion (48.87) from the 2016 IHSAA Boys Swimming/Diving Championship at IUPUI Natatorium last February. Harmon also placed fourth in the 100 free (45.85). He led off Zionsville’s medley relay in 23.13 and anchored the 400 free relay with 45.17.

This summer he competed at NCSA Swimming Championships and finaled in all his events. He finished 11th in the 200m free (1:55.11), fifth in the 50m back (27.20), sixth in the 100m back (58.27), and 14th in the 200 back (2:10.05). Harmon’s best SCY times are:

  • 50 free – 21.58
  • 100 free – 45.85
  • 50 back – 22.93
  • 100 back – 48.87
  • 200 back – 1:49.67
  • 200 IM – 1:52.07

Harmon will immediately add strength to the Yale lineup when he arrives in New Haven. He would have scored in the B final of the 100 back and the C final of the 200 back at 2016 Ivy League Men’s Championships; these were events in which the Bulldogs had limited presence. He joins Sam Pekarek in the Yale University class of 2021.

*IVY LEAGUE DISCLAIMER: A “verbal commitment” by a coach is not an offer of admission, as only the Admissions Office has that authority. An Ivy League coach can only commit his or her support in the admissions process.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email to [email protected].
