NEW COMMIT: Peachtree Corners, Ga. native and U.S. Open qualifier Preston Linn has announced his verbal commitment to George Washington University beginning in the fall of 2022.

Swimming year-round with Spartans Aquatic Club, Lin raced two events at the Mizuno Atlanta Classic in May after collecting gold in the 50 breast at Georgia Seniors in March. He was the runner-up in the 100 breast at the 18&U Winter Championships – Norcross in December and raced at the Toyota U.S. Open.

His best times include:

  • 200 breast – 2:02.07
  • 100 breast – 54.71
  • 50 breast – 25.64
  • 50 free – 21.66
  • 100 free – 48.66
  • 50 fly – 23.64
  • 100 fly – 51.87

A rising senior at Norcross High School, Lin is a three-time Georgia 7A State Championship finalist. He won the 100 breast and placed eighth in the 50 free as a junior while taking second in the 100 breast during his sophomore season.

Lin would’ve scored in the A-final of both the 100 and 200 breast at the 2021 Atlantic 10 Championships where George Washington won the team title.

He will overlap for three seasons with incoming freshmen Connor Rodgers and Philip Moldovanu.
