NEW COMMIT: The University of Wyoming has scored a new verbal commitment for the 2020-21 season and beyond from Reilly Gilbert of Georgetown, Texas.

Gilbert, who owns the Winter Juniors cut in the mile, swims year-round with Texas Gold Swimming under coach Aubrey Knapper and  placed 11th in the 100m fly and 13th in the 1500m free at Des Moines Futures this past summer. Also competing for Saint Dominic Savio Christian High School where he has been a team captain for the past two years, Gilbert is a six-time TAPPS DII State Championship finalist. The two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American set the TAPPS DII state record in the 500 free where he also helped his team secure the championship title.

He told Swimming World:

“I am SUPER excited and blessed to announce my verbal commitment to study and swim at the University of Wyoming! I am looking forward to spending the next four years with the amazing swimmers and coaching staff in Laramie. I am so thankful for all the coaches I have had throughout my life, my family and friends, and most importantly God. GO Pokes!”

His best times include:

  • 100 Free – 46.82
  • 200 Free – 1:42.48
  • 100 Fly – 50.05
  • 200 Fly – 1:51.84
  • 100m Fly – 57.18
  • 400m Free – 4:07.16
  • 1500m Free – 16:11.24

Gilbert will make an immediate impact when he arrives in Laramie, Wyo. as a member of the class of 2024 and will surely see some big time drops this upcoming season after the stellar summer he had. He’ll add his talents to a training group led by Brayden LoveAustin Crump, and Ryan Netzel.
