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.

Kaitlyn Bacik, a senior at Beavercreek High School and a member of the Coffman Family YMCA in Springboro, Ohio, has announced her commitment to swim for the University of Kentucky in the fall of 2020. A sprint/middle distance freestyler and backstroker, Bacik will be joining a Wildcats team that has built a reputation for producing top-level backstrokers, most recently two-time All-American Ali Gayler.

At the 2019 YMCA Great Lakes Zone Championships, she took 4th place in the 200-yard freestyle (1:56.85) and 6th in the 200-yard backstroke (2:06.90).
