NEW COMMIT: The University of Louisville has scored a new verbal commitment for Fall 2025 from Owen Stevens out of Zeeland, Michigan.

He will join Nate Thomas in Kentucky as a member of the Cardinals’ Class of 2029.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swim and academic career at the University of Louisville! I’d like to thank my family, Coach Drew, and my teammates for supporting me. I’d also like to thank Coach Albiero and the entire coaching staff and team of Louisville for welcoming me to The Ville! GO CARDS”

Stevens trains year-round with West Michigan Swimmers and most recently earned three best times at the TYR 18&U Spring Cup in Elkart. He placed fifth in the 200m back at Indy Sectionals in March and placed 22nd in that event at Juniors East back in December.

His best times include:

  • 100 free – 46.20
  • 200 free – 1:39.25
  • 500 free – 4:27.48
  • 100 breast – 56.53
  • 200 back – 1:46.17
  • 200 IM – 1:49.44
  • 400 IM – 3:55.91

Finishing up his junior year Zeeland High School, Stevens won the 200 IM and 500 free at the Michigan DI State Championships in 2023 and 2024. He took sixth and fourth, respectively, in those events during his freshman year.

Furthermore, he was named to the Michigan Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association ‘Dream Team’ after posting the fastest 500 free time from across all of Michigan’s divisions throughout the high school season.
