NEW COMMIT: Stanford has received their first verbal commitment for the class of 2019 recruiting season, this one coming from Manhattan Beach, Calif. native Alexandra Crisera. She will make the move to The Farm next fall.

Crisera does her club swimming with Beach Cities Swimming and is a nine-time Junior National qualifier with the U.S. Open cut in the 50 free. She most recently competed at Junior Nationals and swept both backstroke events and was the 50m free runner-up after achieving four lifetime bests at Nationals. She was a five-time Juniors West finalist last winter and posted five top-5 finishes at Carlsbad Speedo Sectionals.

Crisera also swims for Mira Costa High School and is the two-time defending 100 free champion and the defending champion in the 100 back at CIF-Southern Section Division 2 Championships. She has earned NISCA and USA Swimming All-American honors for her efforts and is also a member of the USA Swimming National Junior Team.

She told Swimming World:

“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to Stanford University! Huge thank you to my family, friends, and coaches who have supported me throughout my swimming career #fearthetree”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 22.43
  • 100 free – 48.87
  • 200 free – 1:47.09
  • 100 back – 52.87
  • 200 back – 1:54.44
  • 100 fly – 55.75
  • 200 IM – 2:00.91
  • 400 IM – 4:23.33

Crisera will be extremely valuable when she suits up for the Cardinals at the start of the 2019-20 season and will be an asset to their sprint relays. Crisera would’ve scored in the A-final in the 100 free and 100 back, the B-final of the 50 free and 200 back, and the C-final in the 200 free and 200 IM and the 2018 Pac-12 Championships. Stanford recently celebrated their dominant NCAA Championship title win.
