NEW COMMIT: Lewis Burras has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Virginia’s class of 2022 via his Instagram account:
Burras swims sprint freestyle and butterfly as a member of the British Jr. National Team. He competed in both the 2017 British National Championships and the 2017 FINA World Junior Championships. In the latter, he raced to a semi-final spot in the 50 freestyle. He currently holds the 15-17 English long course record for the 100 freestyle as well as the junior record in the 50 free for 15 year olds. He also holds several British junior short course meters records. He has represented and been a member of Hamilton Aquatics in Dubai for the last nine years.
Top LCM Times:
- 50 Free – 22.70
- 100 Free – 50.08
- 50 Fly – 24.82
While Burras does not spend much time in the short course yards format, it is safe to say that he will make an immediate impact on the UVA sprint program. It took a 19.61 to make last year’s A final at the ACC Championships, and a 19.98 to make the B. In the 100, it took a 43.11 and a a 43.54. Both sets of times are within Burras’ range based off his long course performances.
Burras on UVA:
“I’m really looking forward to attending UVA as I think it’s an amazing school with a great history, and the swim team has brought in an unbelievable energetic coaching staff. They are highly motivated and I look forward to training with them all!”
