Enzo Solitario, a rising senior swimmer, has achieved a significant milestone by qualifying for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials in the 100-meter butterfly. The trials, set to take place from June 15-23 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, will see Solitario competing against the nation’s top swimmers for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team heading to Paris.

Solitario’s journey to this achievement has been marked by consistent improvement and dedication. At the Bolles School Sharks’ Last Dash for Indy meet in Jacksonville, Solitario achieved his Olympic Trials qualifying time. During Friday’s time trial, he clocked a personal best of 53.37 seconds, surpassing the Olympic Trials standard of 53.59 seconds.

This performance followed an impressive swim at the LA Tiger Aquatic Tristan Vessel Invite, where he had previously recorded a time of 53.71 seconds.

Before this season, Solitario’s personal best in the 100-meter butterfly was 55.27 seconds, which he surpassed significantly at the Fort Lauderdale 18 and Under Spring Cup with a time of 54.42 seconds. His recent performances have demonstrated his rapid progress and strong potential to compete at the highest level. Notably, he has already committed to continue his swimming career at the collegiate level at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

As Solitario prepares for the Olympic Trials, his achievements reflect the hard work and commitment characteristic of Blue Jay student-athletes. The Jesuit community eagerly anticipates his performance in Indianapolis and wishes him the best as he strives for Olympic glory.
