Bohman was the only athlete not from Texas to earn postseason honors, as the Longhorns swept the remaining postseason awards.
“What an honor for Bryce, WVU and our program,” says coach Vic Riggs. “Bryce is well-deserving of this award and has represented our program and University with the utmost integrity.”
 
Bohman’s senior year with the Mountaineers was one of the most decorated seasons in West Virginia swimming history. At the Big 12 Championships, he smashed the school records in the 100 back, 200 back and 100 fly, placing first in the 100 back and earning All-Big 12 First Team honors in all three events.
 
At the NCAA Championships, he made the A-finals in the 100 back and 200 back, setting school records in both events. The Moline, Ill., native earned All-America First Team honors in both events with fifth-place finishes. Bohman became the first WVU swimmer to earn two All-America First Team honors in the same meet, as well as the first male swimmer to earn All-America honors since 2011 and the first male swimmer to earn All-America First Team honors since 2008.
