NEW COMMIT: East Carolina University has scored their second in-state verbal commitment for the fall of 2021 from Salisbury, N.C. native Katie Knorr who will join Reece Alexander in Greenville next year.

Her twin sister, Emily Knorr, has verbally committed to West Virginia and her older brother, Ethan Knorr, is currently a sophomore for the Pirates.

She told Swimming World:

“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to study and swim at East Carolina University.  I would like to thank all my coaches, family and friends who have helped me get to where I am today!  I can’t wait to be a Pirate, join my brother, and continue the legacy.”

A talented backstroker and IMer, Knorr does her club swimming with Mecklenburg Swim Association and owns the Winter Juniors cut in the 200 back. She most recently was the 200 back runner-up at North Carolina Seniors where she achieved five lifetime bests after. Last summer, she finished 18th in the 400m IM at Greensboro Futures.

Her best times include:

  • 100 back – 58.42
  • 200 back – 2:00.66
  • 200 IM – 2:07.36
  • 400 IM – 4:25.46

A current junior at Salisbury High School, Knorr is a six-time North Carolina 1A/2A State Championship finalist. She finished third in the 200 IM and fourth in the 100 back during both her sophomore and junior seasons while taking eighth in those events during her rookie campaign.
