Kamiak's Vlad and Slava Gilszmer both have settled on their post high school plans.
Vlad Gilszmer, the two-time defending Class 4A state 500-yard freestyle champion, has made a verbal commitment to swim for Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
Twin brother Slava Gilszmer will be on the opposite coast. Slava made a verbal commitment to the University of California San Diego.
The 6-feet-7 Kamiak standouts made their announcements on their respective Instagram accounts.
Vlad and Slava placed first and second in the 500 freestyle at state the last two years. The two helped the Knights successfully defend their 200 freestyle relay crown in a meet- and school-record time. Vlad also took third and Slava placed eight in the 200 freestyle at last season's 4A meet.
Vlad also took second in the 500 freestyle at state in his freshman season.
The 2020-21 boys swim season has been pushed back to Dec. 28 with the first competitions scheduled for Jan. 2021.
