NEW COMMIT: Futures qualifier Keenan Day of Raleigh, North Carolina, has announced her verbal commitment for Division III powerhouse Emory University beginning in the fall of 2022.

She told Swimming World:

“I am super thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to Emory university as I continue my academic and athletic journey!! I am so grateful for the support of my parents, brother, family, friends and my YOTA coaches and teammates. I don’t know what I would do without you. I am ready  to be a part of this amazing championship tradition! GO EAGLES”
A talented breaststroker, Day does her club swimming with YMCA of the Triangle Area Swim Team and most recently placed 12th in the 200m breast at the YMCA LCM Swimming Festival in July. She also placed 12th in that event as well as 17th in the 100m breast at the TYR 18&U Spring Cup in Orlando back in the spring after winning the 100/200 breast at the 18&U Winter Championships in December.
Her best times include:
  • 50 breast – 30.17
  • 100 breast – 1:04.43
  • 200 breast – 2:22.21
  • 50 free – 25.07
  • 100 free – 56.07
  • 200 IM – 2:0864

Also competing for Charles E. Jordan High School, Day competed at the North Carolina 4A State Championships in 2019 and 2020.

Day is a great get for the Eagles, as she would’ve scored in the A-final of the 100/200 breast as well as the B-final of the 200 IM at the 2020 University Athletic Association Championships.
