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.
Meghan Armstrong from Kennesaw, Georgia has committed to study and swim at East Carolina University beginning in the fall of 2021.
“I decided to commit to East Carolina University because they have an great nursing program that will help me succeed in the future, as well as an amazing swimming program coached by a supportive and successful coach, as well as a team of girls that are going to help me grow as a person and a swimmer. I am so excited to see what happens. Go pirates!!!”
Armstrong swam at North Cobb High School and was a four-time finalist at the Georgia High School 6-7A State Championships. At the 2021 state meet in her senior season, she placed 5th in the 100 back (58.74) and 7th in the 100 free (53.49).
