NEW COMMIT: Las Vegas, Nevada native Kendall Ruberio has announced her commitment to continue her academic and swimming career at Concordia University Irvine beginning in the fall of 2021.

She told Swimming World:

“I’m super excited to announce my commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at Concordia University Irvine! I can’t thank my family, friends, and coaches enough for pushing me to become the best student athlete I can be. I can’t wait to be a part of this incredible team! GO EAGLES!!”

Ruberio does her club swimming with Sandpipers of Nevada and has achieved four best times during intrasquad meets during the summer and fall. She recorded four top-18 finishes at the TYR Desert Committee Championships in February and placed 11th in the 500 free at the Pro-Am Classic in December 2019.

In Summer 2019, she had a great showing at the MVN Summer Junior Olympics where she collected the silver medal in the 400m, 800m, and 1500m free.

Her best times include:

  • 200 free – 1:55.88
  • 500 free – 5:08.17
  • 1000 free – 10:40.36
  • 1650 free – 17:41.62
  • 200 back – 2:08.45
  • 400 IM – 4:36.91

Also competing for Palo Verde High School, Ruberio placed sixth in the 200 free at the Nevada 4A State Championships during her sophomore season while racing on her team’s 4×100 free relay as a freshman.

Ruberio will make a big impact in a multitude of events when she suits up for the Eagles as a member of the Class of 2025. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 200 back, 400 IM, 200 free and 500 free at the 2020 Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference Championships where she also would’ve placed in the top-8 of the mile and the top-14 in the 1000 free.
