Canadian Flyer Katie Forrester (2022) Delivers Verbal Commitment to Indiana

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.

Katie Forrester from Oakville, Ontario in Canada, has announced her verbal commitment to Indiana University’s class of 2026.

“I chose Indiana University because of their amazing academic and athletic reputation. I am so grateful for the opportunity to advance my athletic and academic career. I want to thank my family, friends, my coach Sean Baker and the other coaches who have helped me along the way. Go Hoosiers!”

Forrester attends Oakville Trafalgar High School and will graduate in the spring of 2022. She swims year-round with Markham Aquatic Club and specializes in butterfly. In May, she competed at SwimAtlanta’s Mizuno Atlantic Classic, finaling in the 100 fly, 200 fly, and 200 IM and picking up new times in the butterfly events. At last spring’s Winter Ontario Swimming Championships, she notched PBs in the 100/200 back and 200/400 IM. She was a top-8 finisher in all her events, placing 2nd in the 200 fly and 400 IM, 3rd in the 200 back, 4th in the 100 fly, and 5th in the 100 back and 200 IM.

LCM best times:

  • 100 fly – 1:01.43 (54.08)
  • 200 fly – 2:17.36 (2:01.23)
  • 200 IM – 2:23.45 (2:06.35)
  • 100 back – 1:06.72 (59.02)
  • 200 back – 2:22.05 (2:05.81)

Forrester will join the Hoosiers’ class of 2026 with Avery Spade, Cat Watrous, Chiok Sze Yeo, Gracie Olsen, Katharina Wrede, Kristina Paegle, Lily Hann, MacKenna Lieske, and Mya Dewitt.
