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.

Connor Haigh of Kennesaw, Georgia has announced his verbal commitment to swim for the University of Georgia beginning in the fall of 2020. Haigh is a senior at Kennesaw Mountain High School and a member of Tidal Wave Swimming.

A breaststroke and IM specialist, Haigh has seen rapid improvements over the last year. This summer he competed at the Georgia Senior State Long Course Championships, winning the 200 breaststroke (2:19.65) as well as taking second in the 100 breaststroke (1:04.55) and fourth in the 200 IM (2:09.19). At this same meet last year Haigh was a 1:10.25 and 2:27.57 in the 100 and 200 breast, respectively. Last spring at the 2019 NCSA Spring Championships he qualified for finals in the 200 breaststroke, finishing 29th in a Winter Juniors qualifying time of 2:04.12.

Top SCY Times

  • 100 breast – 57.23
  • 200 breast – 2:03.71
  • 200 IM – 1:51.03
  • 400 IM – 4:04.27

With his best times Haigh would have been just short of scoring at the 2019 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championships. It took a 54.08/1:58.19 to qualify for the C-final in the 100 and 200 breast, as well as 1:46.47/3:50.06 in the 200 and 400 IM. After arriving on campus Haigh will have one year of overlap with junior Jack Dalmolin who currently leads Georgia’s breaststroke group.
