NEW COMMIT: Cole Reznick of Pleasanton, California, has given his verbal commitment to Duke University. The senior at Amador Valley High School swims year-round for Tri Valley Aquatics. Reznick is a two-time NISCA All-American and a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. As a 15 year old in 2016 Reznick was awared Pacific Swimming’s 2016 Short Course Swimmer of the Year for his age group.

Reznick is his school’s 100 breaststroke record holder and a two-time Captain. At last year’s CIF North Coast Section Championships he finished fourth in the 200 IM and was touched out for third in the 100 Breast.

He is a very well-rounded swimmer, though strongest in breaststroke. A testament to his versatility, Reznick has five junior nationals cuts. His best times include:

  • 100 Breast- 55.93
  • 200 Breast- 2:01.59
  • 50 Free- 21.16
  • 100 Free- 46.53
  • 200 Free- 1:42.16
  • 100 Back- 50.83
  • 100 Fly- 49.50
  • 200 IM- 1:51.51

Reznick told Swimming World,

“I chose Duke because I truly felt it was a program where you were an athlete first and a student first too. The moment I arrived I immediately felt welcomed by the team and the coaches, and the facilities are outstanding. Academically, I’m honored to receive my education at one of the greatest universities in the United States. I’m thrilled to be a Blue Devil! Go Duke!”

Also verbally committed to the Blue Devils are Colson Zucker and Henry Wu.
