NEW COMMIT: Emory University has added a commitment from Calvin Furbee to join the defending Division III NCAA Champions next fall. Furbee is a senior at Grandview Heights High School in Columbus, Ohio. He’s a captain of his high school team and a member of the National Team at Ohio State Swim Club, where he is coached by Kyle Goodrich.

The Winter Juniors qualifier is a butterflier and freestyler. His top times include:

  • 200 Fly 1:53.60
  • 100 Fly 51.28
  • 50 Fly 24.02
  • 200 Free 1:42.98
  • 100 Free 47.46
  • 50 Free 21.99

At last year’s UAA Championships Furbee would have been a 200 butterfly B finalist with his lifetime best time. He also would have been a C finalist in the 200 freestyle.

Furbee holds high school records in the 200 and 500 free, 100 fly and 100 breaststroke. He’s also been an Ohio High School finalist in the 100 fly and 200 and 500 free.

Furbee said of his decision,

“I have chosen to attend Emory University because of the healthy team culture, the tremendous academic opportunities, and the awesome location in a great metropolitan city. I can’t wait to be a part of this team and school. Go Eagles!”
