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.
Bellevue, Washington native Amy Tang, the number 4 recruit on our list of top 20 girls from the high school class of 2021, has announced her intention to swim at Stanford University beginning in the fall of 2021. Tang is the last of our Top 20 recruits to make her decision known. She will join #2 Torri Huske, #8 Samantha Tadder, “best of the rest” category member Meghan Lynch, Anna Shaw, and Lauren Burch in the Cardinal class of 2025.
“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Stanford University! It has been my dream ever since I was twelve, and I am so thrilled to join such a stellar group of swimmers. I would like to thank my family, my coach Kyle Johnson, and my teammates for all their support. Go Card!”
Tang is a rising senior at Lakeside High School in Seattle. She is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and represents the United States internationally as a member of the U.S. National Junior Team. A versatile sprinter, she has Olympic Trials cuts in the 50 free (25.66), 100 free (54.71), 100 back (1:01.84) and 100 fly (1:00.53).
In SCY, Tang was 22.9/49.0 in free as a sophomore, before dropping almost a full second in the 50 and in the 100 during her junior year of high school. Swimming Unattached at 2019 Winter Juniors West, she won the 50 free (tied for first) and 100 free and was runner-up in the 100 back, earning PBs in all three events. Tang is now under NCAA invite times in the 100 free and 100 back and brings in a great 200 free that could make her a five-relay threat for Stanford.
