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.

AnnaKate Velasquez, a current high school senior from Pearland, Texas, has committed to swim for NCAA Division II Ouachita Baptist College. Velasquez will graduate from high school in spring 2020 and join the Tiger’s class of 2024.

Velasquez is a current year-round swimmer for her club team, Pearland Aquatics.

“The Lord is so faithful, and I am ecstatic to announce that I have verbally committed to swim for Ouachita Baptist University to further my academic and athletic career! I am so thankful for the ways the Lord has moved in my life and for all the people who have helped me get to this moment. I can’t wait to be a tiger!! 💛💜”

With her current best times, Velasquez would have competed in finals in two events with the Tigers at the 2020 NSISC Championships. She would have placed 19th in both the 100 breaststroke (1:14.96) and 100 butterfly (1:02.49).
