NEW COMMIT: Junior National qualifier Sydney Gring of Reading, Pennsylvania has announced her verbal commitment to remain in-state for her college career and swim at Pitt beginning in the fall of 2023.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I’m super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic careers at the University of Pittsburgh!! I want to thank my family, coaches, friends, and the Pitt staff for supporting me every step of the way. I can’t wait to be a panther next fall!! H2P!!!!”

A versatile swimmer, Gring does her club swimming with Boyertown YMCA and finished fourth in the 100/200 fly as well as sixth in the 200 free/200 IM at the YMCA Short Course Nationals this past spring. Back in December, she won five events at the Club Mountaineer Speedo Invitational where she was also the runner-up in three additional events.

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.39
  • 100 free – 50.21
  • 200 free – 1:47.90
  • 100 fly – 54.03
  • 200 fly – 1:59.76
  • 200 IM – 2:00.41

A rising senior at Muhlenberg High School, Gring placed second in the 200 free and third in the 100 free at the 2022 Pennsylvania 3A State Championships after winning those events at the District 3 Championships. She raced to second in the 100 fly and fourth in the 200 IM at the state meet as a sophomore.

Gring is a huge get for the Panthers, as she would’ve ranked No. 4 in the 50 free, No. 3 in the 100 free, No. 2 in the 100 fly/200 free/200 fly/200 IM on their roster a season ago.

In April, Chase Kreitler has announced as Pitt’s next head coach.
