NEW COMMIT: Virginia Beach, Va. native Summer Sampson has announced her in-state verbal to Old Dominion University for the fall of 2019.

Sampson does her club swimming with East Coast Aquatic Team and capped off her summer season at Richmond Futures where she competed in two events after posting three best times at VA LCM Seniors. She achieved 100% lifetime bests at VA Seniors in March before finaling in a pair of events at ISCA Juniors. Primarily a backstroker, Sampson has also raced at the Virginia 6A State Championships for Bayside each of her high school seasons so far.

She told Swimming World:

“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to Old Dominion University to further my swimming and academic career. I want to thank my family, friends, and coaches for guiding me and making it all possible. Can’t wait to be be a part of the Monarch family!” 

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 27.94
  • 100 back – 58.30
  • 200 back – 2:06.93

When she suits up for the Monarchs next fall, Sampson will make an immediate impact in their backstroke group. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100 back and the C-final of the 200 back at the 2018 Conference USA Championships.
