NEW COMMIT: The University of Idaho has received their first verbal commitment for the class of 2023 from Alexa Teneyck of Phoenix, Ariz.

Teneyck does her club swimming with Scottsdale Aquatic Club and capped off a strong summer season with four lifetime bests at Mount Hood Speedo Sectionals. She notched a best time in every event she swam at Four Corners Speedo Sectionals in March and recorded a sixth-place showing in the 1000 free.

She also swims for Arcadia High School where she is a four-time Arizona DII State Championship finalist. As a junior, she was the runner-up in the 200 free and placed fourth in the 500 free. Teneyck finished sixth and eighth, respectively, in those same events during her sophomore campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my commitment to swim at the University of Idaho! Thank you to my amazing family, friends, and coaches who have helped me get to where I am today. I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing program for the next 4 years! Go Vandals!”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 25.47
  • 100 free – 53.58
  • 200 free – 1:53.80
  • 500 free – 5:05.40
  • 1000 free – 10:24.10
  • 1650 free – 17:31.01

Teneyck’s freestyle versatility will be valuable when she suits up for the Vandals beginning in the fall of 2019 and she could see action across all distances. Under head coach Mark Sowa, Idaho finished third at last season’s WAC Championships.
