Distance Freestyler John Bossler Verbally Commits to Louisville

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.

Junior Nationals qualifier John Bossler has verbally committed to the University of Louisville. Bossler is primarily a distance freestyler and IMer who to this point of his career has been much faster in long course than short course. Bossler is currently a junior at South Bend Saint Joseph High School and Irish Aquatics in South Bend, Indiana. South Bend is home to Louisville’s ACC rival Notre Dame.
