Kai Wisner of Syracuse, NY and Victor Swim Club has verbally committed to the University at Buffalo. He graduates in June 2017 from Westhill High School in Syracuse, NY. Wisner, a 2-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, summer Junior National qualifier and winter Junior National scorer, is expected to fill gaps from graduations in the UB distance group.

TOP TIMES
• 200 free – 1:45.04
• 500 free – 4:34.22
• 1000 free – 9:26.58 (S)
• 1650 free – 15:37.08
• 400 IM – 4:08.15
• 200 back – 1:53.87

While just outside of MAC conference scoring in the 500 free and 400 IM, Wisner’s best time in the 1650 free scores solidly in the top 8 in the MAC conference.

“UB is such a great fit for me. I really like the closeness of the team. The college of engineering offers everything I was looking for academically and the swim program gives me the challenges and opportunity to contribute to the team’s success that I wanted.”

Distance events have been among UB’s strongest events. As Buffalo graduates three of their distance swimmers this year, they are looking to rebuild the group with fresh talent. Wisner is the latest in additions to what is becoming a very good training group of mid-distance and distance swimmers at UB under Coach Andy Bashor’s and his coaching staff.
