Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.

Amber Myers, a junior at Granite Bay High School and a member of the Sierra Marlins Swim Team from Folsom, California, has made her verbal commitment to swim for the University of Tennessee in the fall of 2021. A sprint freestyler and backstroker, Myers will join a Lady Volunteers team that was very thin in the backstroke department last year, only scoring two in the 100-yard backstroke and one in the 200-yard backstroke.

At the 2019 California CIF State Championship meet, Myers took 18th place in the 100-yard butterfly (55.69) and landed on the podium with her 4th place finish in the 100-yard backstroke (55.16). Myers got the chance to swim in her future home pool at the TYR Pro Swim Series meet in Knoxville where she swam both backstrokes, the 50 LCM freestyle, and the 100 LCM butterfly, swimming personal bests in the 100 LCM backstroke and butterfly (1:03.74 and 1:03.65 respectively).

 Top Times in Yards: 

  • 50 free – 23.25
  • 100 free – 50.74
  • 100 back – 54.83
  • 200 back – 1:58.72
  • 100 fly – 55.48

Myers will join #11 Asia Minnes, HM Summer Smith, Josephine Fuller, Kate McCarville, Lauren Wetherell, Sara Stotler, and Summer Eaker as members of the Lady Volunteers’ class of 2025.
