NEW COMMIT: Ohio’s Rachel Peroni has given her verbal commitment to swim for Duke University beginning in the fall of 2018. Peroni swims for Ohio State Swim Club. The rising senior at Olentangy Liberty High School is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American.

In her Twitter announcement Peroni said,

“So excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Duke University! I can’t wait to be a part of such an amazing team! Go Blue Devils”

Peroni is primarily a butterflier with best SCY times of:

  • 50 Fly 24.88
  • 100 Fly 54.68
  • 200 Fly 2:01.30

With still over a year to go until her collegiate debut, Peroni is just two tenths shy of ACC scoring in the 100 butterfly. She’s also just a half second outside of what it took to make the 2017 200 fly C final.

Melissa Pish, one of the first members of the high school Class of 2018 to give a verbal commitment, has also announced her intent to swim for the Blue Devils.
