NEW COMMIT: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has recently gained a new verbal commitment for the fall of 2019 from Chesterfield, Va. native Adam Kerr.

Kerr swims year-round with Poseidon Swimming and owns three Winter Junior cuts with a Nationals standard in the 400m IM. He capped off his summer season with a pair of best times and a 16th-place showing in the 200m breast at NCSAs and was a five-time VA LCM Seniors finalist. He achieved 100% lifetime bests at the Tom Dolan Invite last winter and had three second swims at NCSAs in March. Kerr also represented Cosby High School at the Virginia 6A State Championships as a junior where he finished third in the 200 IM and 12th in the 100 breast after winning the former at the VHSL 6B Region meet a week prior.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m incredibly excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at the University of North Carolina! A huge thank you to all who have supported me along the way! #goheels”

His best times include:

  • 200 IM – 1:53.07
  • 400 IM – 3:55.85
  • 100 back – 51.72
  • 200 back – 1:49.89
  • 100 breast – 57.95
  • 200 breast – 2:04.18

When he suits up for the Tar Heels as a member of the class of 2023, Kerr will add valuable depth to a young but talented IM training group led by Tyler Hill and Jacob Rauch. Although he sits just outside of scoring range at the ACC Championships, he has continuously made improvements each season with just under a year of club swimming still to go.
