NEW COMMITS: The University of Connecticut has received another verbal commitment for the 2021-22 season and beyond from Hummelstown, Pa. native Claire Ryland.

She will join Amelia Schaefer and Paige Sugra in Storrs as a member of the Huskies’ class of 2025.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“Beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Connecticut! Thank you to my family & coaches for all their support and guidance during this difficult process. Looking forward to what the future holds, Go Huskies!”

A talented sprint freestyler and backstroker, Ryland swims year-round with Hershey Aquatic Club and raced five events at ISCA TYR Junior Nationals in March 2019. Last summer, she finaled in the 100m free at Middle Atlantic LCM Seniors where she earned three best times.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.64
  • 100 free – 51.62
  • 200 free – 1:55.26
  • 100 back – 58.12
  • 200 back – 2:04.37

Also competing for Hershey High School, Ryland is a three-time Pennsylvania 3A State Championship finalist. She placed eighth in the 50 free and 15th in the 100 free as a junior while taking 13th in the former event during her freshman season.

Ryland will add valuable depth both individually and on relays when she suits up for the Huskies next fall. She is just shy of scoring range at the American Athletic Conference Championships, but has made consistent improvements each season,
