Tierney Howell houston

NEW COMMIT: The University of Houston has picked up a new verbal commitment for the 2023-24 season and beyond from Junior National qualifier Tierney Howell of West Fargo, North Dakota.

She told Swimming World:

“I am excited to announce my commitment to the University of Houston where I will be furthering my academic and athletic career. I would like to thank my family, teammates and coaches for both believing in me and pushing me to achieve my goals. #GoCoogs”

A talented sprinter, Howell does her club swimming with Northern Lights Swim Association and most recently placed 28th in the 50m free at Minneapolis Futures last month after winning six events at North Dakota LCM Seniors. She raced three events at Juniors West back in December before going on to final in the 50m free and 100m fly at Pleasant Prairie Sectionals.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.23
  • 100 free – 51.36
  • 100 fly – 55.44

A soon-to-be senior at Sheyenne High School, Howell is a multi-time North Dakota State Championship gold medalist. She’s even the North Dakota state record holder in the 100 fly and has earned High School All-America honors.

Howell is a great pickup for the Cougars, as she would’ve ranked No. 4 in the 50 free, No. 6 in the 100 fly and No. 7 in the 100 free a season ago.
