UPEI Swimming lands major sprinting recruit

University of Prince Edward Island Swimming Coach Bill Calhoun is excited to announce Allen Boshnyak is joining the Panthers this fall.

The 21-year-old International student from Israel will make an immediate impact in the AUS. His times from last season would have seen him ranked second in the 50-metre backstroke and butterfly and would have qualified Boshnyak for the CIS Championship.

"With the appropriate development, Allen has the potential to not only make finals at CIS (Top 8) but potentially win the 50 m backstroke," said Coach Calhoun. "His underwater kicking talent is by far the best in the AUS and possibly in the CIS. The team is extremely excited to have Allen joining the team in September and we look forward to seeing what he is capable of achieving for the swimming team and UPEI Athletics."

Boshnyak said on a recent visit to campus, "I look forward to swimming for UPEI, it's a great school and a great opportunity."

Boshnyak will be entering the Bachelor of Arts program.
