Emmy Gallion Commits to the Liberty University Flames

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.

Emmy Gallion, a high school senior from Arlington, Virginia, has committed to swim for Division I Liberty University. Gallion will graduate from high school in spring 2021 join the Flames’ class of 2025.

Gallion is a current swimmer for the Nations Capital Swim Club where she is a Futures qualifier. At the 2018 Potomac Valley Senior Short Course Championships, she placed 4th in the 100 backstroke with a time of 58.51.

“I am so excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and swimming career at Liberty University. I am so grateful to my wonderful teammates, coaches, and family for supporting me and pushing me to be the the very best I can be.  I can’t wait to represent Liberty as a lady flame. Go Flames!”
