7x Wisconsin HS Champ Sophie Fiske (2021) Verbally Commits to In-state Badgers

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.

Sophie Fiske, a USA Swimming Academic All-American from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Wisconsin for 2021-22.

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at the University of Wisconsin. I would like to thank my friends, family, and coaches for the support and encouragement throughout this process. I am so blessed to have this opportunity and I cannot wait to be a Badger!”

Fiske is a junior at Sun Prairie High School who specializes in sprint free. She has won back-to-back Wisconsin WIAA state titles in the 50 free, 100 free, and 400 free relay and she was on the winning 200 free relay this season. At the 2019 WIAA Division 1 State Meet last month, she won the 50 free in 22.93 and the 100 free in 49.82 and anchored Sun Prairie’s 200 free relay in 22.43 and the 400 free relay in 49.11. As a sophomore those times were 23.20, 50.35, 22.63, and 49.36, respectively.

In club swimming, Fiske attended USA Swimming’s 2019 National Diversity Select Camp. She competed at 2019 Speedo Junior Nationals in the 50m free and 100m free and finaled (23rd place) in the 50. Her best times in those events (26.45 and 57.29) date from the summer of 2018.

Fiske will suit up for the Badgers with fellow class of 2025 verbal recruits Abby Carlson, Katie McClintock, Mackenzie McConagha, Natalie Bercutt, and Paige McKenna. Wisconsin turned over most of its sprint crew this season. Fiske will overlap with Alana Palmer, Lillie Hosack, Isabel Cortina, Julia Stupar, and Carly Zlotnikoff.

Another quality commitment for the lady Badgers. Bucky’s been killing it on the women’s swimming recruiting trail this fall.
