NEW COMMIT: Missouri State University has gained a new verbal commitment for their class of 2024 from Carol Stream, Ill. native James Doromal. Primarily a breaststroker and IMer, he will join the Bears at the start of the 2020-21 season.

Doromal, who swims year-round with NWDupage YMCA / BR Ryall Swim Club, owns four U.S. Open standards and most recently won the 400m IM and earned silver in the 200m breast at the YMCA LCM National Championships. Last winter, he recorded a best time at Juniors West before registering five top-10 finishes at Illinois Seniors. A current senior at Bartlett High School, he also earned bronze medals in both the 200 breast and 400 IM at YMCA SCY Nationals in April.

He told Swimming World:

“MSU is going to be my home away from home. I can’t wait to be a part of the Bear family. Go Bears!”

His best times include:

  • 100 breast – 57.01
  • 200 breast – 2:02.15
  • 200 IM – 1:50.27
  • 400 IM – 3:53.72

Even with a year of club swimming still to go before suiting up for the Bears, Doromal will make an immediate impact in their IM and breaststroke groups as his best times already rank near the top of their lineup. He would’ve scored in the A-final of both IMs as well as the 200 breast at the 2019 MAC Championships where Missouri State finished second overall in the team standings.
