NEW COMMIT: Louisiana State has earned a verbal commitment for the fall of 2019 from local butterflyer and IMer David Boylan of Gonzales, La.

Boylan does his club swimming with Crawfish Aquatics and owns the Winter Juniors standard in the 200m fly and 200m IM. He won the 200m breast and 200m IM at the LA LCM State Championships over the summer after achieving 100% best times at Austin Speedo Sectionals. He posted six top-5 finishes – including a win in the 1000 free – at the LA SCY Championships in February and finished seventh in the 400 IM at Longhorn Super Sectionals in March.

Also swimming for East Ascension High School, Boylan is a four-time Louisiana State Championship finalist. He won the 200 IM and finished third in the 100 fly as a junior after placing sixth in the 100 back during his sophomore season.

He told Swimming World:

“This whole journey been amazing. I never imagined this opportunity when I joined Crawfish Aquatics back in 2010. I can’t thank my sisters, coaches, teammates, and especially my parents enough for getting me to this point! Being a tiger is truly a dream come true.”  

His best times include:

  • 200 fly – 1:53.24
  • 200 IM – 1:52.90
  • 400 IM – 4:00.65

When he suits up for the Tigers next fall, Boylan will join a fly training group that includes Trent Schachter and an IM squad led by Cameron Karkoska and Jackson Lucas.
