Backstroker Garrett Munk Commits to St. Louis University

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.

Garrett Munk, a current high school senior from Phoenix, Arizona, has committed to swim for Division I St. Louis University. Munk will graduate from Brophy College Prep in spring 2020 and join the Billikens’ class of 2024.

Munk is a current swimmer for the Phoenix Swim Club. At the 2019 AIA DI Boys State Championships, Munk placed 2nd in the 100 backstroke (50.75) and 5th in the 200 IM (1:54.73). He is also a Sectionals and Futures qualifier.

“I am excited to announce I have commited to further my academic and athletic career at Saint Louis University. I’m looking forward to swimming for Coach Halliburton for the next 4 years. I loved everything about SLU, the campus, the team, the professors and the community. I want to thank my mom, dad, coaches, teammates and everyone who has supported me. I truly couldn’t have done it without all of you. Go Billikens!! #AMDG”

At the 2020 Atlantic-10 Championships with St. Louis, Munk would have placed 24th in the 100 backstroke with his current best time of 50.75. He would have been St. Louis’s 5th fastest backstroker with that time.

Best SCY Times:

  • 500 freestyle – 4:44.08
  • 200 backstroke – 1:55.56
  • 100 backstroke – 50.75
  • 100 butterfly – 51.97
  • 200 IM – 1:54.73

At the A-10 Championships this year, the Billikens placed 7th as a team under head coach Halliburton.
