Former Nelson Neptune swimmer Jordan Andrusak is ready to take the next step in an exceptional career in the pool after making a verbal commitment to the NCAA.

Andrusak, now swimming for Pacific Coast Swimming in Victoria, recently committed to Bowling Green State University for 2017-18.

“Jordan made a great connection with [head coach] Matt [Ense] and his program and is looking forward to being a Falcon for the next four years,” said father Greg Andrusak.

Andrusak specializes in IM and breaststroke, although she has a strong freestyle as well. At the Canadian Swimming Championships in Edmonton this past August, Andrusak competed in the 200m breaststroke, 200m butterfly, 200m Individual Medley, and 400m Individual Medley, qualifying for finals in all events except 200m butterfly.

Andrusak earned personal best in the 400m Individual Medley.

At the SwimBC AAA Championships in March, Andrusak qualified for A finals in the 200m breaststroke and 200/400m Individual Medley, and B finals in the 200m freestyle, 100m backstroke, and 100m breaststroke.

Andrusak was a star with the Neptunes Summer Swim Club before moving to Victoria in 2014 to pursue swimming.

Andrusak was selected for Team BC for a third straight year, training out of Victoria Commonwealth Pool with Pacific Coast swimming Club.

Andrusak is considered to be a mid-distance swimmer who specializes in the individual medley (200 IM and 400 IM) but also strong in individual events including breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle.

The Neptunes recently completed a great season on the Kootenay Summer Swim Association circuit despite not having a home pool for training.

Now that the NDCC Aquatic Centre has completed renovations, the Neptunes have already started its winter swim program.

Bowling Green University, located 24 kilometers south of Toledo, Ohio, in Bowling Green, is a NCAA Division One member that competes in the Mid-American Conference.
