NEW COMMIT: The University of Connecticut has received their second early verbal commitment for the fall of 2022 from breaststroker Paige Spencer of Dover, N.H.

She will join Hannah Jyawook of Franklin, Tenn. in Storrs as a member of the Huskies’ Class of 2026.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am honored and excited to announce my verbal commitment to study and swim at the University of Connecticut! I want to thank the UCONN coaching staff for giving me this amazing opportunity, and I look forward to training and competing with an outstanding group of athletes. I also want to give a huge thank you to all of my coaches, teammates, friends and family who have supported me along the way! #gohuskies”

Spencer, who does her club swimming with SOLO Aquatics, placed 12th in the 200m breast and 14th in the 100m breast at the U.S. Open in Greensboro back in November. In Summer 2019, she finaled in the 100m breast at Geneva Futures before going on to race both breaststroke events at Junior Nationals.

She is currently a junior at St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

Her best times include:

  • 100 breast – 1:04.10
  • 200 breast – 2:25.81
  • 200 IM – 2:11.32

Spencer will add valuable breaststroke depth when she arrives on campus at the start of the 2022-23 season following the graduation of Katelyn Walsh. Spencer would’ve placed in the B-final of both the 100 and 200 breast at the 2020 American Athletic Conference Championships.

Beginning on July 1, 2020, the Huskies returned to the Big East Conference. UCONN is led by head coach Christopher Maiello.
