Tyler Fenwick Promoted to Senior Associate Head Coach at Virginia

When Todd DeSorbo took over the University of Virginia swimming program in 2017, Tyler Fenwick and Blaire Bachman (now Blaire Anderson) joined his staff right away and helped guide the program to remarkable success over the first seven seasons, including four consecutive women’s national championships. Now, Anderson has left Charlottesville to become Director of Swimming at Texas A&M, but Fenwick will remain on Virginia’s staff with the new title of senior associate head coach.

“Tyler has been such an integral part of our programs success the last seven years as we started here at UVA together,” DeSorbo said in a press release provided by Virginia. “He was my first hire and I’m excited to have him by my side for another seven seasons. He’s been particularly instrumental in our recent recruiting successes and has led the charge for the future of both our men and women. He’s always willing to take on any task, is very flexible and loyal. I am looking forward to even more success with Tyler and our program going forward.”

The release noted the extensive success which Virginia has achieved since DeSorbo, Fenwick and co. arrived:

“In seven seasons at UVA, Fenwick has helped Virginia to four consecutive NCAA women’s team championships and five ACC women’s titles. The men’s program has produced five top-20 finishes at the NCAA Championships since 2019. Since his arrival, the Cavaliers have produced 32 women’s national champions, 191 women’s individual All-Americans and 32 women’s All-American relay teams, 48 men’s individual All-Americans and 25 men’s All-American relay teams.

“UVA swimmers have broken World Records twice and NCAA records 29 times over the last seven seasons and currently hold 11 of the 19 NCAA Championship swimming marks. During that same time, Cavalier swimmers broke American records 42 times and own a total of 20 current American records (long and short course). UVA competitors have won five Olympic medals (2020 Tokyo Olympics) and 49 World Championship medals including 18 World Championship gold medals since 2022.

“The UVA men and women have each broken 15 school records and 21 long course meter records during Fenwick’s tenure.”

Before Virginia, Fenwick coached at the University of Tennessee, the Mission Viejo Nadadores and the Germantown Academy Aquatic Club.
