Senior Ian Cooper recently gave his verbal commitment to Florida State University. In regards to his commitment, Cooper stated:

“I choose FSU because of the amazing coaching staff, team atmosphere, and academics. Thank you so much to everyone who has helped me along the way. I can’t wait for the next 4 years! Go noles!”

Cooper swims club year round with the Storm Swim Club, where he is coached by John Hulvey. He has qualified for multiple USA Swimming championship meets such as Sectionals, Futures, and Junior Nationals. Cooper has been a top competitor in the 50 freestyle at his local meets, such as Senior Champs and Sectionals. He took his talents to the national level, at this past Winter Junior Nationals. Where he was very close to his best time, going 21.00 in the 50 free and barely missing the final.

Cooper attends Creekside Saint Johns, which he represented during his high school career. He finished his last FHSAA meet with a bang! Cooper went a best time in his 100 free, touching in 45.58, making him the 3A State champion. In the 50 free, he went a best time of 20.92 and came in at a close second. His impressive freestyle was a valuable part of the team’s top three finish in both freestyle relays for the boys. Cooper’s incredible swim career has led him to choose to a competitive D1 school to continue his studies and training.

Congratulations, Ian! We wish you luck as a seminole.
