A talented butterflyer, Hanley does his club swimming with Blue Dolfins and most recently earned three best times at the Florida OT Qualifier where his highest finish was a sixth-place showing in the 200m fly. He raced four events at Juniors East in December and notched two PBs at NCSAs in March 2019.

Also competing for Oviedo High School, Hanley is a five-time Florida 4A State Championship finalist. He placed fourth in both the 100 back and 100 fly as a junior while taking sixth and eighth, respectively, in those events during his sophomore season.

Hanley is also an eight-time FHSAA 4A Region 01 finalist. He raced to second in the 100 back and third in the 100 fly in 2019 after finishing third and seventh, respectively, in 2020.
