NEW COMMIT: The University of Louisville has received another verbal commitment for the 2022-23 season from U.S. Open qualifier Jordan Durocher of Fredericksburg, Va.

She will join U.S. National Junior Teamer Rye Ulett as a member of the Cardinals’ Class of 2026.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I’m extremely honored and blessed to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Louisville. I couldn’t thank my coaches, family, friends, and teammates enough! GO CARDS!”

A versatile swimmer, Durocher trains year-round with Nation’s Capital Swim Club and owns several Junior National and U.S. Open standards. She most recently posted a pair of top-10 finishes at Potomac Valley Seniors in March and achieved six PBs at December’s NCAP Invitational.

In summer 2019, she finished seventh in the 100m back at Potomac Valley LCM Seniors before going on to earn seven best times at NCSAs.

Currently a junior at Riverbend High School, Durocher is a four-time Virginia Class 6 State Championship finalist. She was the runner-up in the 500 free and placed fifth in the 200 IM as a sophomore while taking eighth in the 200 IM and 10th in the 100 back during her freshman season.

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 27.01
  • 100 back – 55.91
  • 200 back – 1:57.94
  • 200 IM – 2:03.79
  • 400 IM – 4:15.48
  • 100 fly – 56.65
  • 200 fly – 2:02.44
  • 200 free – 1:56.48
  • 500 free – 4:56.52

When she arrives on campus in the fall of 2021, Durocher will add her talents to a training group that’ll include Tristen UlettTatiana SalcutanPaige Hetrick, and Abby Hay. Under head coach Arthur Albiero, the Cardinals finished third at the 2020 ACC Championships.

History was made in 2019 for the Cardinals as they became the first ACC program in history to have both its men’s and women’s teams finish among the top-five in the team standings at the NCAA Championships in the same year. Highlighted by a pair of national titles for Mallory Comerford, the women’s team recorded their highest finish in program history with a fourth-place showing at the 2019 NCAA Championships. Their score of 235 points was the most points scored by a Cardinal team at NCAAs in history, and Louisville secured third place at the 2019 ACC Championships.
