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.
High school junior Fletcher Hayes from Englewood, Colorado has announced his verbal commitment to the Auburn University class of 2025 where he will join future classmates Grant Davis and Nate Stoffle.
“I am very honored and excited to announce that I will be continuing my swimming and academic career at Auburn University. When I first set foot on campus I knew it was the school for me, the coaches and swimmers made me feel like family and I knew I had found my place. I cannot thank my family, coaches, teammates and friends enough for all their support! WAR EAGLE!!”
Fletcher swims for Arapahoe High School in Littleton and Aces Swim Club.
