Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Margaret Meehan of FMC Aquatic in Illinois has committed to the U.S. Air Force Academy for fall 2021. Meehan is a senior at Lyons Township High School in the western Chicago suburbs.

  • 100 fly – 57.81
  • 200 fly – 2:05.02

Meehan is a versatile swimmer, with strengths in the breaststroke, butterfly and IM. She has gone lifetime bests in the 200 breast, 100 fly, 200 fly and 400 IM in 2021, all coming at the 2021 Illinois Senior Championships in March.

Meehan qualified and swam at the IHSA State Championships as a freshman, sophomore and junior; the meet did not happen this past season due to the pandemic. Her highest finish was 14th in the 200 IM in 2018 as a sophomore.

The Air Force women finished seventh at a competitive Mountain West Championships in February. Meehan would’ve led the team this past season in the 200 fly, 200 IM and 400 IM with her lifetime bests, while she would’ve also been fourth on the roster in the 200 breast. At the Mountain West Champs, Meehan would’ve scored in B-finals of the 200 breast, 200 fly, 200 IM and 400 IM.
