NEW COMMIT: The University of Tennessee has scored a big verbal commitment for the 2021-22 season and beyond from Canadian National Teamer Brooklyn Douthwright of Riverview, New Brunswick.

She’ll arrive in Knoxville as a member of the Lady Vols’ class of 2025 along with Sammy Huff, Cory ShanksAmber MyersSara StotlerKate McCarvilleLauren WetherellSummer EakerJosephine FullerSummer Smith and Asia Minnes.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee! Everything from the coaches and athletes to the facilities and resources makes me confident that I have found my home away from home! A huge thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout my athletic and academic careers! Can’t wait to be a lady vol 🧡”

A talented freestyler, Douthwright advanced to the semifinals of the 100m free at the 7th FINA World Junior Championships last summer, finishing 13th overall. She also anchored Team Canada’s 4x100m medley relay and led-off their 4x200m free relay that both secured the bronze medal.

Douthwright, who trains with Codiac Vikings Aquatic Club, raced five events at the Toyota U.S. Open in December after winning the 400m free at the Toronto Grand Prix in January. She most recently registered seven top-10 finishes at the Ontario Youth Championships in March and placed ninth in the 400m free, 13th in the 200m free, and 14th in the 100m free at Canadian Trials in April 2019.

Her best times include (LCM/SCY conversions):

  • 50 free – 26.04 / 22.94
  • 100 free – 55.53 / 49.24
  • 200 free – 1:59.69 / 1:45.67
  • 400 free – 4:20.86 / 4:52.04
  • 100 back – 1:04.09 / 55.62
  • 200 back – 2:15.14 / 1:57.95
  • 100 fly – 1:01.90 / 55.02
  • 200 IM – 2:18.95 / 2:01.59

Douthwright will make a big impact both individually and on relays when she suits up for the Lady Vols in the fall of 2021. Her best time (converted to yards) would’ve placed in the B-final of the 200 free and the C-final of the 100 free at the 2020 SEC Championships, and she’ll arrive on campus following the graduation of Tjasa Pintar and Bailey Grinter.

Under head coach Matt Kredich, Tennessee clinched their first-ever SEC title in program history last season.
