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.

Lafayette, Louisiana-native Ashley Gill has announced her verbal commitment to swim for the University of Missouri beginning in the 2021-2022 season. Gill attends Ascension Episcopal School in Lafayette where she is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. The rising senior is a 4-time LHSAA Division 4 State Champion, having won the 100 back and 100 fly as a junior and the 100 free and 100 back during her sophomore season. In November, she broke the LHSAA Division 4 record in the 100 fly with her winning 55.60. She also won the backstroke by 6 seconds 57.68, swam fly (24.34) on the winning 200 medley relay, and led off (52.88) the state-champion 400 free relay.

Gill swims year-round for City of Lafayette Aquatics and is a Winter Juniors and NSCA qualifier. She won the 50 free (23.60) and was runner-up in the 100 fly (56.39), and took 3rd in the 100 free (52.37) and 100 back (57.05) at the 2020 Louisiana Senior State Championships in February.

“I am super pumped to announce my verbal commitment to swim at the University of Missouri! I am extremely thankful to continue my athletic and academic careers. A huge thank you to all my friends, family, and coaches that have shaped me into the swimmer I am today!”
