NEW COMMIT: Markham, Ontario native Brooke Switzer has announced her verbal commitment to Georgia Tech and will suit up for the Yellow Jackets next fall.

Switzer swims year-round with Markham Aquatic Club in Canada. She capped off a successful summer season at the Canadian Junior Championships where she earned the silver in the 800m free and the bronze in the 400m free. At the Canadian Championships in April, Switzer’s highest finish was a seventh-place showing in the 800m free; she also took 11th in the mile and 12th in the 400m free. She was also a four-time Ontario Provincial champion.

She told Swimming World:

“I chose Georgia Tech due to its outstanding academics and amazing swim team. I can’t wait to be a part of such a wonderful school!! I’d like to thank my parents for taking their time to drive me to and from the pool every day, and my coaches for pushing me harder than I thought possible. I couldn’t have done this without them and everyone else in my life including my family, friends, teammates and teachers. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!! GO JACKETS!!”

Her best times in LCM include:

  • 100m free – 58.41
  • 200m free – 2:05.37
  • 400m free – 4:19.95
  • 800m free – 8:59.85
  • 1500m free – 17:23.96
  • 200m IM – 2:22.79
  • 400m IM – 4:59.57

In SCY, those times convert to:

  • 100 free – 51.63
  • 200 free – 1:50.81
  • 500 free – 4:49.06
  • 1000 free – 10:10.03
  • 1650 free – 17:08.30
  • 200 IM – 2:05.22
  • 400 IM – 4:22.42

Switzer will add valuable depth when she arrives in Atlanta as a member of the class of 2023 and will have one year of overlap with top returning distance swimmer Emily Ilgenfritz. Switzer’s best 500 time (converted to yards) would’ve scored in the C-final at the 2018 ACC Championships.
