NEW COMMIT: Bucknell University has opened their Class of 2025 recruiting with a verbal commitment from breaststroker Will Hedges of Summit, N.J.

Under head coach Dan Schinnerer, the Bison finished fourth overall in the team standings at the 2020 Patriot League Championships.

He told Swimming World:

“I am thrilled to announce my commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Bucknell University! Thank you to the Coaches who believed in me and followed me through my junior year and trust me to join their Class of 2021! Thank you to my family, High School and Club Coaches as well as my teammates who have helped me from the beginning! GO BISON!”

Hedges does his club swimming with Summit Area YMCA and earned two best times at YMCA SCY Nationals in 2019 after racing to ninth in the 100 breast at the New Jersey 13&O Championships. Last summer, he placed 12th in the 50m breast, 13th in the 100m breast, and 18th in the 200m breast at YMCA LCM Nationals.

His best times include:

  • 100 breast – 56.19
  • 200 breast – 2:03.17
  • 200 IM – 1:54.22

A rising senior at Summit High School, Hedges has competed at the New Jersey Meet of Champions that last two years. He placed fifth in the 100 breast as a junior while taking 15th in that event during his sophomore season. He has also been named to the New Jersey All State Third Team.

When he arrives in Lewisburg in the fall of 2021, Hedges will add valuable breaststroke depth to Bucknell’s lineup. He would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100 breast and 200 breast at last season’s conference championships
