Biola University Receives Commitment from Katie Ottman for Fall 2020-21

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.

Katie Ottman, a current high school senior from Livermore, California, has committed to swim for Division II Biola University. Ottman will graduate from Livermore High School in spring 2020 and join the Eagles’ class of 2024.

Ottman is a current year-round swimmer for Livermore Aquacowboys Club, where she has been team captain for the past three years. “I hope I have inspired others as much as they have inspired me,” Ottman said.

“I chose Biola University because I want to do my best to praise God through whatever I do including swimming and school. When I went to Biola everyone was super nice and I believed it was the place for me. I can’t wait to meet so many amazing people and strengthen my relationship with God.”

This year at the 2020 PCSC Swimming and Diving Championships with Biola, Ottman would have placed 14th in the 50 freestyle with her current best time of 24.45.
