New Commits: Indiana University has received two verbal commitments to the Class of 2022. Florida’s Christin Rockway and Michigan’s Ileah Doctor have chosen to become Hoosiers in the fall of 2018. They join breaststroker Noelle Peplowski in the class of 2022.

Christin Rockway

The Valrico, Florida native swims for Tampa Bay Aquatics and is a rising senior at Tampa Catholic High School.

Rockway told Swimming World,

“I chose Indiana because I fell in love with the fantastic culture the program has created, the friendliness of the team, and the innovative style of the coaching staff. I loved all they had to offer!”

Rockway’s best SCY times are:

  • 200 IM 2:00.24
  • 400 IM 4:12.04
  • 200 Fly 1:57.66
  • 100 Back 55.93
  • 200 Back 1:57.47
  • 500 Free 4:46.80

At the 2016 Florida 1A State Championships Rockway was runner up in the 500 freestyle. Rockway should make a splash for Indiana as well in her first season as a Hoosier. At the 2017 Big Ten Championships she would have been in the B final of the 400 IM and 200 fly and a 200 IM, 500 free, and 200 back C finalist. Her scoring potential gives the coaching staff options depending on which events she develops over the next few years.

Ileah Doctor

Doctor is a sprint freestyler and breaststroker who trains with East Grand Rapids Aquatics. Her best SCY times are:

  • 50 Breast 30.41
  • 100 Breast 1:02.60
  • 50 Free 22.73
  • 100 Free 51.01

Doctor is a rising senior at East Grand Rapids High School. At the 2016 Michigan High School Division 3 Lower Peninsula state championships East Grand Rapids took home the state crown. Doctor was a key piece of that success. She was on the 200 medley and 200 freestyle division record setting relays. She also took down the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke division records.

She said in her Instagram post, “I’m super excited to announce my commitment to Indiana University! Go Hoosiers!!”

At the 2017 Big Ten Championships Doctor would have been a 50 freestyle B finalist. She’s just on the edge of scoring in the 100 breaststroke as well.

Doctor and Peplowski will both have a year to train with Lilly Smith.
