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.
New Albany Aquatics Club swimmer Lauren Klinefelter has verbally committed to swim at The College of William & Mary. The senior at Columbus Academy will join in the fall of 2022.
Klinefelter specializes in butterfly, and has a Futures cut in the 100 butterfly.
“I am thrilled to announce my commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at William & Mary!! I want to thank my coaches, family, and friends for always supporting me. I am so excited to be part of such a great team!”
She recently competed at the 2021 Speedo Sectional Meet in Geneva, Ohio. There, she placed tenth in the 200-meter butterfly, thirteenth in the 50-meter butterfly, and sixteenth in the 50-meter backstroke. She also competed at the Ohio Central, East, & Southeast District meet for her high school, where she placed third in the 100 butterfly and the 200 individual medley.
Her best short course times are:
- 50 butterfly: 26.09
- 100 butterfly: 56.95
- 200 butterfly: 2:05.84
- 200 individual medley: 2:09.81
William & Mary is a Division I school in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). At the women’s 2021 CAA Championship, William & Mary placed second out of six teams. With her best times at that meet, Klinefelter would have placed in the B finals in the 100 and 200 butterfly.
Klinefelter would have had the fifth-fastest time in the 200 butterfly for William & Mary last year. She also would have had a top-15 time for all performances of the 100 butterfly in the 2020-21 season.
Klienfelter joins a number of commits to William and Mary, including distance freestyler Kelsey Katt and freestyler and backstroker Caroline Burgeson.
