NEW COMMIT: Potomac, Md. native Brett Feyerick has announced his verbal commitment* to Princeton University beginning in the fall of 2021, giving them their first for the class of 2025.

He was named Swimming World’s Up & Comer in February 2016. He also broke the 11-12 National Age Group Record in the 50 back in December 2015. He is also the former 10&U NAG record-holder in the 50 back, although both national marks have since been broken.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

I am incredibly honored to announce my commitment to the application process at Princeton University! I would like to give a special thanks to my family, coaches, teachers, teammates and friends for their ongoing support and encouragement throughout this process. Go tigers”

A talented sprint backstroker and freestyler, Feyerick swims year-round with Nation’s Capital Swim Club and is a U.S. Open qualifier. He finaled in the 100m back at the Toyota U.S. Open in December and finished 10th in the 200 back at NCSAs in 2019. Last summer, he grabbed bronze in the 100m back at Potomac Valley Seniors before going on to race at Junior Nationals.

His best times include:

  • 50 back – 22.66
  • 100 back – 48.16
  • 200 back – 1:45.99
  • 50 free – 20.71
  • 100 free – 45.15
  • 200 free – 1:40.96
  • 200 IM – 1:50.38

Also competing for Georgetown Prep, Feyerick is a six-time Washington Metropolitan Prep League Championship finalist. The two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American won the 100 free and 100 back as a junior while taking second and first, respectively, in those events during his sophomore season. He also collected gold in both of those events in his rookie campaign.

Feyerick will make an immediate impact when he suits up for the Tigers at the start of the 2021-22 season as he would’ve been their top backstroker last season in both the 100 and 200. He would’ve scored in the A-final of the 100 back and the B-final of the 200 back at the 2020 Ivy League Championships where Princeton finished second behind Harvard.
