NEW COMMIT: The University of North Carolina Wilmington has received a verbal commitment from versatile in-state swimmer Avery Gambill. Gambill’s top times include:

  • 500 Free 4:33.22
  • 200 Free 1:40.83
  • 1650 Free 16:18.15
  • 200 IM 1:53.43
  • 100 Breast 58.03

A USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, Gambill is a senior at North Mecklenburg High School. At last year’s NCHSAA 4A state championships, Gambill was seventh in the 200 freestyle and fourth in the 500 freestyle.

He’ll be a valuable piece for the Seahawks. At last year’s Colonial Athletic Association Conference Championship Gambill would have finished 12th in the 500 freestyle. He would have been the team’s highest finisher, ahead of Brad Allison (4:34.28). Allison will be a senior in Gambill’s first year. Gambill would have been a tenth of a second from getting a second swim in the 200 IM at last year’s meet. He’d also be a 100 breaststroke B finalist.

Gambill told Swimming World,

“I am extremely excited and incredibly blessed to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at University of North Carolina at Wilmington! #Dubs #WingsUp”

SwimMAC Carolina has a seemingly endless supply of high school seniors. Those who will continue their swimming careers into college now include: Sydney HaynesEmma WalkerLilly HiggsTeddy PerelliJulia MenkhausCurtis Wiltsey, Will ChanHeidi Lowe and Sophie Linder.
