Insixiengmay is a senior at Forsyth Country Day School with whom he has won the 100 breast at the North Carolina Independent Schools Division II State Championships in each of the last three years. As a freshman at the 2019 he won with 58.55 and came in third in the 200 IM (2:06.20). The following year he repeated in the breast, going 57.49, and was again third in the IM, but this time he clocked a 2:00.76. Last season, his winning 100 breast time was 56.49. He was runner-up in the 200 IM with 1:58.38.

At the 2020 North Carolina 18&U Virtual Winter Championships, he placed 9th in the 100 breast (55.16) and 8th in the 200 breast (2:01.66). He also swam the 100 back, 100 fly, and 200 IM. Insixiengmay competed at the Last Splash Invitational in Florida this summer, where he won the 50 breast (28.54) and 100 breast (1:03.60), took 5th in the 200 breast (2:21.76), and was 23rd in the 200 IM (2:18.26).

Insixiengmay has also practiced taekwondo for many years. In a 2019 interview with the Winston-Salem Journal, he told Dan Kibler, “Both sports help each other. Taekwondo helps swimming, and swimming helps taekwondo. There’s endurance, getting in shape, rehabbing your muscles.”
Insixiengmay was invited to the 2020 National Select Camp that took place October 14-17, 2021 at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, California. He will join the UGA men’s team next fall with Charlie Stout, Clayton Whetstine, Cooper Cook, Kristian Pitshugin, Sam Kohm, Sam Powe, and Tyler Schroeder.
