3x Vermont State Champion Miles Cochrane Delivers Verbal To Penn State For 2020

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.

Miles Cochrane, a Scholastic All-American from Green Mountain Aquatics in Colchester, Vermont, has announced his verbal commitment to swim for Penn State beginning in the fall of 2020. Primarily a breaststroker, Cochrane has seen massive improvements in both breaststroke distances, dropping 7.75 seconds in the 200 and 1.5 seconds in the 100 just in the last year.

“Beyond excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career with Penn State University! Thank you to my family, friends, teachers, teammates and coaches for all their support and guidance. #WEARE.”

At the New England Senior Championships over the summer, Cochrane took 6th place in the 200 LCM breast (2:29.40) and 7th place in the 100 LCM breast (1:09.27). At the NE KING 15-18 AG Championship in March, Cochrane won the 100-yard breaststroke (57.98) and took second place in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:06.93)

Top Times in Yards:

  • 100 breast – 57.68
  • 200 breast – 2:03.25
  • 200 fly – 1:52.79
  • 200 back – 1:56.01
  • 400 IM – 4:05.58

Cochrane will be joining fellow breaststroker Ben Doyle as well as Zach Brewer, Jacob Oberle, Jacob Houck, Branko Kosanovich, and John Guilinger as members of the class of 2024 for the Nittany Lions.

Hopefully this kid from a small state is ready to handle a big time program. Great improvement but not good enough to be an impact swimmer in this breaststroke squad!
