NEW COMMIT: The University of Hawai’i has a new addition for their 2021-22 roster in Junior National qualifier Owen Ngan of Portland, Ore.

He will join Logan Euker of Fredericksburg, Va. as a member of the Bows’ Class of 2025.

He told Swimming World:

I am absolutely ecstatic to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa! I am beyond blessed and thankful for my friends, family, coaches for the support they have given me over these past years.  Special thanks to Coach Emily, Coach Alex, and my parents for their unwavering support. Catch me in paradise. GO BOWS!!!!”

An extremely versatile swimmer, Ngan trains year-round with Lake Oswego Swim Club and was the 400 IM runner-up at St. George Sectionals in April after racing that event at the Toyota U.S. Open in November. He collected gold in the 400 IM at Oregon Seniors in March 2020 and placed fifth in that event at Mount Hood Futures in August 2019.

His best times include:

  • 100 breast – 57.99
  • 200 breast – 2:03.37
  • 200 IM – 1:53.32
  • 400 IM – 3:58.17
  • 500 free – 4:36.04
  • 1000 free – 9:27.36
  • 1650 free – 15:45.58

A recent graduate of Clackamas High School, Ngan placed fifth in the 500 free as a junior at the Oregon 6A State Championships. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American finished third in that event, as well as fifth in the 200 IM, during his sophomore season.

Under head coach Elliot Ptasnik, Hawai’i finished second at the MPSF Championship in 2021.
