Backstroker Mie Due Announces Commitment to South Dakota State

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.

Mie Due from Rancho Palos Verdes, California has announced her intention to swim for South Dakota State University next fall. A senior at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School in Rolling Hills Estates, Due will join Emma Bachelder in the Jackrabbits’ class of 2024.

“Fell in love with the great state of South Dakota”

Due last participated at CIF Southern Section Division II Championships as a sophomore in 2018. She swam back and IM and was a B finalist in both events. In club swimming, she represents Swim Torrance. Since the start of her senior year of high school, she has improved her lifetime bests in the 50/100/200/1000 free, 200 breast, 100/200 fly, and 400 IM. She competed in the 100 back, 200 back, and 200 IM at 2020 Carlsbad Sectionals. In December, she swam at Husky Invite, notching best times in the 50 free and 100 fly. Last summer she competed at Mt. Hood Futures in the 50 free, 100 back, and 200 back and picked up a new best time in the 50m free.

Top SCY times:

  • 50 back – 27.34
  • 100 back – 57.68
  • 200 back – 2:07.54
  • 200 IM – 2:11.41

South Dakota State finished 3rd of 6 teams at the 2020 Summit League Championships. Due’s best times would have placed her in the A final of the 100 back (with junior Tiffany Nguyen and senior Lily Schimke) and the B final of the 200 back with Nguyen, Schimke, and sophomore Adria Golla.
