Seminole's Brandon Christian commits to West Virginia



Seminole swimmer Brandon Christian committed to West Virginia on Tuesday.

The decision was easy. Christian said the school is where his parents met and he has a lot of family members who still live in the area.

“I have been a fan all of my life,” Christian said. “Ever since I started swimming and actually got serious about it, it has been a dream of mine to go there and swim. Once the coach contacted me and took me on an official visit, I fell in love with the team and coaching staff, as well as the campus.”

Christian, a senior, is a distance swimmer. Last year, he was fifth in the 500 free (4:34.43) and sixth in the 200 free (1:41.49) at the 4A state meet. Two weeks ago, Christian took first in the 200 free (1:42.00) and second in the 500 free (4:38.05) at the Pinellas County Athletic Conference meet.
