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.

Destany Lewis from Grand Terrace, California has made a verbal commitment to Florida State University for 2021-22. She wrote on social media:

“In case you didn’t NOLE, I committed!! I am absolutely stoked to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Florida State University! I would like to thank my friends, family, coaches, and teammates for their endless support, and God for leading me to the school of my dreams! I am so extremely blessed to be apart of the Seminole family! 💛 #canigetagonoles #unconquered”

Lewis is a senior at Grand Terrace High School which competes in Division IV (smallest schools) of CIF’s Southern Section. While the season was canceled her junior year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Lewis competed at the Section Championships as a sophomore in 2019. There, she was runner-up in the 50 free (23.78) and took 3rd in the 100 free (53.31). She led off the consolation final-winning 200 medley relay with the fastest backstroke leadoff split from both finals (26.97). Her leadoff in the 200 free relay was also the fastest in the field (24.00). Her best 50/100 free and 50 back times came out of that meet.

Lewis swims club with SOCAL Aquatics Association. She had a strong summer in 2019 with PBs in the LCM 50/100 free, 50/200 back, and 50/100 fly. She competed in the 50/100 free and 100 back at Mt. Hood Futures and placed 16th in the 50 free. In March 2020 she swam the same events at Carlsbad Sectionals
