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.
Jacob Troescher of Eagle, Idaho has committed to swim at Colorado Mesa University in the class of 2025.
“I’m excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Colorado Mesa University this fall. I would like to thank God, my Family, my Coaches, and my Friends for all their loving support along my journey. I look forward to working with Coach Wender and Coach Hastings for the next 4! Mavs Up!”
Troescher swam for Bishop Kelly High School in Boise, wrapping up his prep career last October at the 2020 Idaho High School Virtual State Championships with a 48.54 in the 100 free and a 59.57 in the 100 breast. As a sophomore in 2018 he came in 5th in the 100 breast (1:05.38) and 4th in the 200 IM (2:08.31).
In club swimming, Troescher represents Boise YMCA Swim Team and recently updated his lifetime bests in the 500 free, 100 breast, 200 breast, and 200 IM at the Virtual YMCA Swimming Festival, placing top-8 in all four events.
Top SCY times:
- 100 breast – 58.55
- 200 breast – 2:09.80
- 200 IM – 1:56.16
- 400 IM – 4:14.67
- 500 free – 4:41.83
- 100 free – 48.87
Troescher will suit up with fellow class of 2025 commit John Walgast next fall. His best times would have scored in the A finals of the 500 free, 100/200 breast, and 400 IM and the B final of the 200 IM at 2021 RMAC Championships. He will overlap two years with 100/200 conference champion Mahmoud Elgayar and his classmates Jake Simmons and James Kaku, who went 1-2-3 in the 200 breast while junior Tucker Adams was 8th. In the 100, George Durin, also a sophomore, placed 3rd just ahead of Kaku.
