NEW COMMIT: George Washington University has scored a new verbal commitment for the fall of 2021 from Futures qualifier Chloe Hernandez of Miami, Fla.

She will suit up for the Colonials along with Moriah FreitasJulia KnoxTaylor Bernosky and Ava Deangelis as a member of the class of 2025.

Hernandez will not be the only DI swimmer in her family, as her sister is currently a sophomore at Southern Methodist while both her mother and aunt swam for Indiana.

She told Swimming World:

“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at George Washington University! I want to thank my friends, family, and Coaches for supporting me throughout this process. I can’t wait to be a part of such an exceptional team. Thank you Coach Thomas and Coach Stefl. Go Colonials!”

Hernandez trains year-round with Gulliver Swim Club and last competed at Plantation Sectionals where she finished 18th in the 50m free. She collected two gold medals at the TYR Last Chance/Holiday Classic in November and finaled in four events at Southern Zone Sectionals in March 2019.

In Summer 2019, she earned bronze in the 50m breast and took fourth in the 50m free at Florida Gold Coast Seniors before going on to compete at Greensboro Futures. She is also currently a Florida Gold Coast LSC student-athlete representative.

Her best times include:

  • 50 Free – 23.78
  • 100 Free – 52.08
  • 100 Fly – 58.62
  • 100 Breast – 1:06.70

Also competing for Gulliver Preparatory School, Hernandez is a six-time individual Florida 2A State Championship finalist. She was the runner-up in the 50 free and placed ninth in the 100 free as a junior while taking first and third, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season.

She was also named the Miami-Dade County Girls’ Swimmer of the Year in 2019 and was a finalist for the Miami-Dade Class 4A-1A Female Athlete of the Year.

Hernandez will make an immediate impact both individually and on relays when she suits up for the Colonials at the start of the 2021-22 season. Her times are already near the top of their lineup, and George Washington clinched its first-ever Atlantic 10 Conference title last season.
