NEW COMMIT: Indiana University has picked up a new verbal commitment for their growing Class of 2026 from Junior National qualifier Lily Hann of Mountain Lakes, N.J.

She will join the Hoosiers along with Cat Watrous, Chiok Sze YeoKristina Paegle, Avery Spade, Gracie Olsen and Mya DeWitt at the start of the 2022-23 season.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I am so excited and honored to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Indiana University! I would like to thank my coaches, friends, family, and teammates for helping along the way. Go Hoosiers?❤️

A talented butterflyer, Hann does her club swimming with Lakeland Hills YMCA and was the 100m fly champion at New Jersey Seniors last February and competed at Juniors East in 2019. She raced four events at YMCA Short Course Nationals in April 2019 before going on to finish third in the 100m fly and fourth in the 50m fly at YMCA Long Course Nationals that summer.

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 54.86
  • 200 fly – 2:01.10
  • 100 free – 52.65
  • 200 free – 1:54.28

Currently a junior at Mountain Lakes High School, Hann has earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for her efforts in the pool and in the classroom.

She has made some pretty notable improvements since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping three seconds in the 100 free and two in the 100/200 fly. When she arrives in Bloomington, she’ll add her talents to a training group that’ll be led by Ashley Turak and Carla Gildersleeve.

Under head coach Ray Looze, the Hoosiers finished third overall in the team standings at the 2020 Big Ten Championships.
