NEW COMMIT: Queensbury, N.Y. native Theodore “TJ” Bearor has announced his verbal commitment to Towson University and will arrive on campus at the start of the 2020-21 season.

Bearor does his club swimming with Clifton Park-Halfmoon Piranhas and capped off his long course season by racing three events at Geneva Futures this past summer. Last winter he earned one gold, three silvers, and two bronzes at the Adirondack SCY Championships before going on to record five best times at Buffalo Speedo Sectionals. Also competing for Queensbury Senior High School, he placed 23rd in the 100 free at the New York Federation Championships during his junior season.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Towson University. As soon as I stepped on campus and met the coaching staff and team I knew this was the place for me. With a talented group of athletes and top of the line coaching I felt as though I could grow as a person and excel in the classroom as well as see great time drops. I want to thank my family, friends, and coaches for helping me get to this point and I’m stoked for the next four! Go Tigs!”

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 21.59
  • 100 free – 47.09
  • 200 free – 1:43.92
  • 500 free – 4:45.14
  • 200 IM – 1:58.61

When he suits up for the Tigers as a member of the class of 2024, he’ll add valuable depth to their freestyle and IM training group. Although he’s not in scoring range just yet at the CAA Championships, he has continuously made improvements each season. He will join Reed Sells and Brian Benzing next fall in Maryland.
