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.
California backstroker/freestyler Katie Yule will join the USC Trojans in the fall of 2020, rather than the Tennessee Volunteers.
Yule had originally verbally committed to Tennessee as a junior in high school. But per her Instagram, Yule changed her college choice and will now join the USC Trojans. Yule currently swims for DART Aquatics and Folsom High School in Folsom, California. She’s primarily a backstroker, but also a solid mid-distance freestyler.
Yule’s Top Times
- 100 back: 56.71
- 200 back: 1:58.90
- 200 free: 1:49.40
- 500 free: 4:53.66
USC’s coaching staff is still in flux. Longtime head coach Dave Salo announced in January that he’d be stepping down after this season to focus on training professionals and Olympic hopefuls. There’s been lots of speculation about potential candidates to replace Salo, but so far, the school has not announced any hire.
Yule joins an incoming freshman class that we recently ranked #5 in the nation. It already includes star breaststroker/freestyler Kaitlyn Dobler along with Canadian Olympic hopeful Jade Hannah. Others in the 2020 freshman class are Anicka Delgado, Andrea Santander, Caroline Famous, Adair Sand, Caraline Baker and Johanna Jorgenson.
