Distance Swimmer Zach Spain Commits to New York University

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.

Zach Spain, a current high school senior from Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania, has committed to swim for Division III New York University. Spain will graduate from Germantown Academy in spring 2020 and join the Violets’ class of 2024.

Spain is currently a year-round swimmer for the Germantown Aquatic Club.

“I am so excited to finally announce my commitment to swim for New York University! I want to thank Coach Miele for giving me such an amazing opportunity. I could not have achieved this without the support and encouragement of my Germantown Academy swim family. Go Violets!”

With his current best times, Spain would have placed in the top heat of the 1650 freestyle at the UAA conference championship meet. He would have placed 6th with his current time of 15:50.54.
