Gabriel Finch has given his verbal commitment to swim for Iona College. He is from Worthington, Ohio where he swims for Worthington Swim Club and is a senior at Thomas Worthington High School.

Finch shared,

“I am proud to announce my commitment to Iona college! I felt right at home the second I stepped on campus and met the team. The coaches Nick and Tony made it clear early on they wanted a MAAC championship and I can’t wait to be a part of that! Go Gaels!”

His best times are:

  • 200 IM 1:55.59
  • 100 Back 52.90
  • 200 Back 1:54.29
  • 100 Fly 51.96

Iona College finished fifth at the 2016 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships. Finch will contribute to those efforts. Last season, his best time would have made him a 200 IM B finalist. Underclassmen took 11 of 16 finals spots in that event last year, so it should stay quite competitive for the next few years. Finch would have been the Gaels’ top finisher. He will join an IM group that was led by Samuel Brziel (1:56.55) and Matthew Bosse (1:57.21) last year. The sophomore-freshman duo finished as alternates at last year’s meet.

His best 100 backstroke time would also landed Finch in the B final. Bosse turned in a fourth place 51.37 in that event last year. Sophomore David Ciaverelli was a B finalist with a 53.05. Finch will enter the mix of that training group when he moves to New Rochelle in the fall.
