Virginia Tech has already started building a class of 2022 as high school junior Alex Wright has committed to swim for the Hokies beginning in the fall of 2018. Wright swims for Evergreen Swim Club in Olympia, WA.

Wright shared how he made his decision,

“I immediately felt right at home with the school and the coaching staff during my visit. Everyone was incredibly friendly and welcoming and the team is on the rise. The campus, the education, and the facilities are phenomenal and I am really looking forward to making VT, and Blacksburg my new home. Go Hokies!!!”

Wright’s top times are:

  • 200 Fly 1:48.60
  • 200 Back 1:47.91
  • 400 IM 3:55.06
  • 500 Free 4:29.14
  • 1000 Free 9:23.77
  • 1650 Free 15:36.58

Wright still sits just outside ACC conference level scoring, but with nearly two years to go until his first Conference Championship, he has time to move into scoring range.
