NEW COMMIT: Rochester Institute of Technology has picked up a new commitment for the fall of 2021 from backstroker Connor Shriver of Macungie, Oa.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m super excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Rochester Institute of Technology! Thank you to my family, friends, teammates, and coaches for helping me get to where I am today!! I love everything that RIT has to offer in the classroom and in the pool. Can’t wait for the next 5!!!”

Shriver trains year-round with Emmaus Aquatic Club and earned five best times at the Carlisle 18&U Winter Championships in December where his highest finish was a ninth-place showing in the 200 back. In Summer 2019, he notched two lifetime bests at Middle Atlantic LCM Seniors before going on to have a stellar showing at Eastern Zone Seniors.

His best times include:

  • 50 back – 24.64
  • 100 back – 51.35
  • 200 back – 1:51.84
  • 50 fly – 24.10
  • 100 fly – 52.37

Also competing for Emmaus High School, Shriver finished 15th in the 100 back at the Pennsylvania 3A State Championships as a junior. The week prior, he raced to second in the 100 back and fifth in the 100 fly at the PIAA District XI AAA Championships.

Shriver will make an immediate impact when he suits up for the Tigers as a member of the Class of 2025. His best time in the 100 back would’ve secured the runner-up spot at last year’s Liberty League Championships while his 200 back would’ve gotten him the bronze medal.

He is also already faster than the 100 back program record of 52.26 set by Aidan Daudier in 2020. Shriver and Daudier will overlap for two seasons.
