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.
William Kerscher, a senior at Regis Jesuit High School and a member of Highlands Ranch Aquatics in Colorado, has announced that he will be swimming for Division III Emory University in the fall of 2020. A breaststroker that dabbles in sprint freestyle, Kerscher will be joining an Emory team that is hot off of a runner up finish at the 2019 Division III National Championships. He is the first confirmed member of the Eagles’ class of 2024.
I am so proud and excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Emory University. Go Eagles!
A HUGE congrats to Will Kerscher ‘20 for committing to DIII powerhouse Emory University!! Emory has 17 Top-3 finishes at the NCAA DIII Championships in the past 20 years, including a National Title in 2017. Hard work pays off! @RJ_Media @aurorasports pic.twitter.com/Rhj6GLwf3A
