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.
The University of Cincinnati has gained two new commitments from Baylor Swim Club’s (Chattanooga) Jewel Gordon and York and York County YMCA’s Brina Uhlin from Pennsylvania for their class of 2024. Gordon specializes in the rare combo of sprint free and breaststroke while Uhlin is a butterflier and excels at the longer backstroke and IM events. Gordon was the 2019 TISCA Tennessee State Championship meet bronze medalist in the 50-yard freestyle (23.46) and took 6th place in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:04.80). At the 2019 YMCA Long Course National Championships, Uhlin took 22nd place in the 100 LCM butterfly (1:04.57) and 15th place in the 200 LCM butterfly (2:24.83).
Best Times for Jewel in Yards:
- 100 breast – 1:03.13
- 200 breast – 2:21.68
- 50 free – 23.46
- 100 free – 51.97
Best Times for Uhlin in Yards:
- 100 fly – 55.76
- 200 fly – 2:03.32
- 200 back – 2:05.66
- 400 IM – 4:30.76
Gordon will join the Bearcats with the 2nd fastest 100-yard breaststroke time behind now-junior Victoria Hunt and Uhlin would have qualified 14th in both the 100 and 200-yard butterfly races at the 2019 American Athletic Conference Championships. They will join IMers Kennedy Grotjohn and Liz Jantausch as members of the Cincinnati class of 2024.
