Lafayette Hill’s Reece Whitley named Pac-12’s Swimmer of the Week

The Pac-12 conference has named Lafayette Hill native Reece Whitley its Swimmer of the Week. Whitley graduated from Penn Charter and now swims for the University of California.

Here is what the conference shared about Whitley in the announcement:

Whitley had a standout performance in California’s second of two consecutive dual meet victories last weekend by breaking three Spieker Aquatics Complex pool records versus Arizona State on Saturday, Jan. 25. The former Pac-12 Freshman of the Year set individual pool records in the 100- (52.77) and 200-yard (1:53.65) breaststroke in addition to swimming a 23.85 split on the second leg of the Bears’ pool-record swim in the 200 medley relay (1:25.14). This marks the sophomore’s first-career Pac-12 Swimmer of the Week honor.
