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.
Massachusetts prospect Ania Axas will be moving to the Midwest as she has committed to D-III Kenyon College (OH) of the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC). Axas is currently a senior at Wilbraham & Monson Academy and swims club for Mei’s Typhoons Swim Club of the New England Swimming LSC. After enrolling, she will be the lone swimmer on the women’s roster from the Bay State.
Axas brings tremendous versatility to Kenyon College with a strong pairing of freestyle and butterfly. In 2018, she earned her first futures cuts in the 100- and 200-butterfly during long-course season. She also earned a Futures cut in the 200 meter IM. Using her personal bests in short-course, she would have earned a spot in the finals of the NCAC Championships in all three events.
“I’m extremely excited to announce my commitment to swim and study at Kenyon College! Kenyon provides me with the opportunity to excel both academically and athletically. The team’s culture and spirit is incredible, and the positive energy fostered by Coaches Jess, Fernando, and Tracy makes me absolutely thrilled to be part of this team. I can’t wait for the next four years! Go Lords & Ladies!!”
