NEW COMMIT: Santa Ana, Calif. native Hunter Ingram has made his verbal pledge to the University of Arizona and will join the Wildcats next fall.

Ingram does his club swimming with Irvine Novaquatics where he is a three-time Junior National qualifier with a U.S. Open cut in the 200m free. He placed 21st in the 200m free at Juniors this summer and finaled in a pair of events at the Speedo Grand Challenge. He raced four events at Juniors West last winter and placed sixth in both the 100 and 200 free at Carlsbad Speedo Sectionals.

Also competing for Foothill High School, Ingram is a six-time CIF Southern Section finalist. The two-time NISCA All-American finished second in the 100 free and fourth in the 200 free as a junior after placing fourth and second, respectively, in those same events during his sophomore season.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m proud to announce my commitment to the University of Arizona.  Thank you to everyone whole been there for me along the way.”

His best times include:

  • 100 free – 45.35
  • 200 free – 1:38.24
  • 500 free – 4:29.97
  • 100 fly – 49.96

When he arrives in Tucson as a member of the class of 2023, Ingram will join a freestyle group that includes Jorge Iga and Brooks Fail. He would’ve scored in the C-final of the 500 free at the 2018 Pac-12 Championships where the Wildcats finished fifth in the team standings.
