Distance Freestyler Molly Kennedy Commits to DII Florida Southern

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.

Molly Kennedy, a high school senior from Ashburn, Virginia, has committed to swim for Division II Florida Southern College. Kennedy will graduate from Stonebridge High School in spring 2021 join the Moc’s class of 2025.

Kennedy currently swims for Nation’s Capital Swim Club, along with swimming for her high school team at Stonebridge.

Kennedy is the first swimmer from the class of 2021 to commit to Florida Southern. She specializes in distance free, and at the 2019 PVS LCM Championship, she placed 2nd in the 800-meter freestyle.

She is also a three-time Virginia state finalist, where she won the 500 freestyle her sophomore year.

“So incredibly excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and swimming career at Florida Southern College! Thank you so much to all of my amazing coaches, family, team, and friends who supported me every step of the way, I couldn’t have gotten here without them! You guys can probably guess what I’m going to study 🦈#gomocs 🐍”

At the Sunshine State Conference Championships with the Mocs, Kennedy would have placed 12th in the 1650 freestyle with her current best time of 17:47.99. She also would have been Florida Southern’s fastest mile swimmer at that meet.
