NEW COMMIT: Junior National qualifier Brady McInerney of Westerville, Ohio has announced his verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Kentucky beginning in the fall of 2022.

He will join Logan Smith and Logan Ingerick as a member of the Wildcats’ Class of 2026.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

“I’m Super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Kentucky!! Thank you to my family, coaches, and friends who have helped to get me to this point! Go Cats! #bbn”

McInerney, who trains year-round with New Albany Aquatic Club, picked up for new lifetime bests at the Oxford 18&U Winter Championships in December. In Summer 2019, he earned 100% best times at Ohio LCM Seniors before going on to race six events at Cleveland Sectionals.

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 21.07
  • 100 free – 45.81
  • 200 free – 1:39.89
  • 200 IM – 1:51.80

Currently a junior at St. Francis DeSales High School, McInerney is a three-time individual Ohio State Championship finalist. He placed seventh in the 200 IM and 13th in the 100 back as a sophomore while taking 10th in the former event during his freshman season.

The Wildcats finished seventh overall in the team standings at the 2020 SEC Championships under head coach Lars Jorgensen. They also qualified five swimmers for the NCAA Championships – their most in a decade.
