Frank Howden '22 has committed to swim in college for Davidson.

Frank Howden ’22 has set a precedent as the only Christ School swimmer to be named team MVP three years in a row.

So, he is more than worthy to compete at the next level – Frank has committed to Davidson College.

The senior from Asheville has won individual events at each of the Greenies’ past two meets, most recently the 100-yard breaststroke (1 minute, 2.57 seconds) Wednesday in Asheville School’s pool.

As a junior, Frank recorded a fourth-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:00.81) and 200-yard individual medley (1:57.08) at the NCISAA Division I state meet. In addition, Frank was a leg on Christ School’s fifth-place 400-yard freestyle relay (3:32.52) and ninth-place medley relay (1:47.91). He was the Carolinas Athletic Association runner-up in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:02.25) and third in the 200-yard individual medley (2:02.56).

Frank was named to the USA Swimming Scholastic All-America Team for having a minimum grade-point average of 3.5 and a Junior National qualifying swim.

Outside of swimming, he is an Eagle Scout and Christ School’s Servant Leadership Chair.
