AMHERST, Mass. - The UMass men's swimming and diving program has signed their first student-athlete for the class of 2016. John Bateman, a native of Beverly, Mass., has committed to join the Minutemen next season.

Bateman, currently at St. John's Prep, has been received the Boston Globe All-Scholastic award and is a six-time YMCA All-American. He boasts career bests of 1:52.40 in the 200 IM, 4:03.80 in the 400 IM and 2:06.88 in the 200 breaststroke.

Head Coach Russ Yarworth is excited saying, "John is a very versatile, goal oriented swimmer from a strong club program at North Shore YMCA. Under Coach John Ogden he's developed into a very accomplished IMer and Breaststroker. He'll make a significant impact in the Atlantic 10 Conference next year!"
