Austin grad to compete in Men’s NCAA Division I Swim Championships
(ABC 6 News) – A former Austin Packer has been selected to compete in the 2022-23 Men’s NCAA Division I Swim Championships.
Logan Kelly will swim in the 200 breast event where he took home the gold at the Horizon League Championships with a new meet record time of 1:52.86. Kelly holds the Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) record in the 200 breast and the 100 breast.
Logan becomes the first swimmer in program history to represent IUPUI at the NCAA Championships.
The sophomore will be one of 235 swimmers competing at the NCAA Championships on March 22-25 at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center in Minneapolis.
In 2024, the U.S. Olympic swimming trials will take place in Indianapolis and Austin’s Logan Kelly will be there.
The former Packer has qualified for the Olympic swimming trials during the Indiana Swimming Senior State Meet which took place in Bloomington. Kelly’s first place finish in the 200m breaststroke was just enough for him to qualify at 2 minutes and 15.61 seconds.
Kelly currently swims on the IUPUI Jaguars team where he has set records as he did at Austin, including a 52.43-second time in the 100m breaststroke.
