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.
Patrick Deevy has announced his commitment to continue his academic and athletic career at Lynn University, located in Boca Raton, Florida. Deevy is a Colorado native, and is finishing up his final year at Heritage High School in Littleton. He also trains and competes year-round with the Aquawolves Swim Team, which is located in the Denver area.
Deevy shared his commitment on Instagram:
Deevy has had a busy spring with the Colorado High School State Championships this month and Speedo Sectionals in March. At the high school state meet, Deevy earned 21st in both the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. His 50 free time of 21.88 marked a personal best by nearly a tenth, while his time of 1:00.61 in the 100 breast was just off.
Deevy had a fantastic meet at Sectionals and set a slew of best times. He shaved a tenth off in the 100 breast to finish 63rd, while in the 200 breast he dropped over four seconds to post a time of 2:12.18 for 69th. Rounding out his best time performances was the 200 IM, where he also dropped well over four seconds (2:03.05).
