A current junior at Lee’s Summit North High School, Worth is a six-time Missouri Class 2 State Championship finalist. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American recently broke a 28-year-old state record in the 100 breast as a junior while defending his title in the 200 IM. He won the 100 breast and 200 IM during his sophomore season after placing first and eighth, respectively, in those events during his rookie campaign.

His best times include:

  • 50 breast – 25.23
  • 100 breast – 53.53
  • 200 breast – 1:59.21
  • 200 IM – 1:49.39
  • 400 IM – 3:54.93

Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before suiting up for the Hoos, Worth will make an immediate impact in their breaststroke training group. He would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100 breast as well as the C-final of the 200 breast at the 2019 ACC Championships where UVa finished third overall in the team standings.
