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.
Kylie Loving, a senior at Oakleaf High School in Florida, has opted to stay in state at the University of North Florida.
“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of North Florida! I cannot wait to be part of such an amazing team and school. Thank you to my friends, family, and coaches who’ve supported me through this process. Go Ospreys! ”
Loving competed at the 2021 Florida high school championships for Class 4A. There, she finished eleventh in the 100 breaststroke. She also swims club for the Bolles School Sharks. At the 2021 Florida Swimming Spring Senior Champs (North), she finished 4th in the 50 breast, 8th in the 100 breast, and 15th in the 200 breast.
Loving has a USA Swimming Futures cut in the 100 breaststroke. Her best short-course yards times are:
- 50 free: 26.03
- 100 free: 55.25
- 100 breast: 1:05.80
- 200 breast: 2:25.21
UNF is a Division I school and member of the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association. The team did not participate at the 2021 CCSA women’s championships due to COVID-19, but the Ospreys placed 5th out of nine teams.
With her best times, Loving would have the fastest 100 breaststroke on the team this season, and the 4th-fastest 200 breaststroke time. Some of the top Osprey breaststrokers Loving will be able to train with include current freshman Bella Giresi, who has the 3rd-fastest 200 breast time on the team, and freshman Bria Boreham, who has the 2nd-fastest 100 breast time on the team.
Loving joins four other 2022 commits. Allea Jensen is a sprint freestyler, Amelia Hildebrand is a freestyler and breaststroker, Ellie Hixenbaugh is a breaststroker, and Claire Kerber is a butterflier. Loving is the fastest 100 breaststroker among the recruits, but Hixenbaugh has a faster 200 breaststroke.
