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.
Rebecca Tobias of Hendrickson High School and Longhorn Aquatics near Austin, Texas has announced that she will be joining the swim team at Austin College in Sherman, Texas as a member of the class of 2023. Specializing in the endurance based events, Tobias already holds times in the 1650 yard freestyle/200 yard butterfly/400 IM that land her within the top 10 times of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference from the 2018-2019 season.
“I feel like Austin College will give me the academic rigor and challenge needed to be successful in the future. I love the sense of community, not only within the team, but also around campus and throughout different organizations. Go ‘Roos!”
I’m excited to announce my Verbal Commitment to Austin College D3 Swim and Dive! Thank you to everyone who has supported my swim journey, and to all the coaches who have inspired and believed in me. I am planning on Majoring in Biochemistry with a focus in Pre-med. Go ‘Roos!!! pic.twitter.com/rLuO58HhJC
