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.
UC Santa Barbara has picked up a verbal commitment from Alyssa Lund of Walnut Creek, CA for its class of 2026. Both of her parents attended UCSB. Lund is a year-round swimmer for the Walnut Creek Aquabears and she is a senior at Northgate High School.
I am beyond thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at UCSB! The beautiful campus, academic life, and team are a perfect fit for me! Thank you to my coaches, Matt, Mike, Todd, Russell, Christian, Jeff, family, teammates, and friends for helping me achieve my dream! GO GAUCHOS!
In 2019, Lund competed at the California CIF North Coast Section Championships as a freshman. She swam the 50 and the 100 free as well as two relays. She made it back in the B-final for both of her individual events, touching 16th in the 100 free and 13th in the 50 free. In finals, she moved up to 10th place in each, going a 24.22 in the 50 and a 52.91 in the 100.
Lund swam on Northgate High School 200 and 400 free relays, anchoring each one. She anchored the 400 free relay in a time of 52.80, with Northgate winning the B-final. She split a 50 free time of 23.22 on their 200 free relay, earning a silver medal. The relay team which also consisted of Maile Andresen, Caraline Levy, and Toria Stahl finished 0.04 seconds behind San Ramon Valley High School.
