NEW COMMIT: Phoenix, Az. native Samantha “Sam” Krew has handed Tulane University their first verbal commitment for the 2021-22 season and beyond.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic careers at Tulane University! Thank you to my family, friends, coaches, and teachers for supporting me along the way. Roll Wave!”

A talented freestyler and butterflyer, Krew most recently earned silver in the 200 free and bronze in the 200 fly at the Arizona Senior Open. Last summer, she won the 200m fly and was the 200m free runner-up at Arizona LCM Seniors before going on to final in the former ever at Des Moines Futures.

Her best times include:

  • 100 free – 51.00
  • 200 free – 1:50.68
  • 500 free – 4:57.95
  • 100 fly – 55.84
  • 200 fly – 2:03.49

Also competing for Chaparral High School, Krew is a six-time Arizona DI State Championship finalist. She finished third in the 100 free and fifth in the 200 free as a junior while taking second in the 100 fly during her sophomore season. As a freshman, she grabbed the silver medal in both the 100 fly and 100 free.

In 2019, she helped her team clinch their sixth-straight team title while swimming on a pair of Chaparral’s winning relays. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 100 fly and 200 free at the 2020 American Athletic Conference Championships where Tulane finished fifth overall in the team standings.
