College (Indiana)

2018

In his first season as a Hoosier, Fantoni made an immediate impact. He won B1G titles in the 100 backstroke, 200 medley relay, and 400 medley relay, as well as earned a runner up finish in the 200 backstroke. At NCAA’s, he again led Indiana to a victory in the 400 medley relay, Indiana’s first national relay title under the guidance of Ray Looze.

2019

Fantoni continued to improve during his 2nd year in Bloomington. At the B1G championships, he defended his title in the 100 back, and 1-upped himself by winning the 200 back as well. He also helped the Hoosiers defend their title in the 400 medley relay, which broke a conference record. They would go on to rebreak that record at NCAA’s, defending their national title and becoming only the 2nd relay ever to go under 3:00 (2:59.75). Fantoni scored individually at these NCAA’s, finishing 10th in the 100 backstroke (44.96).
