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.
Eve Thomas, a current high school senior from Marietta, GA, has committed to swim for NAIA D1 Loyola University in New Orleans.
Thomas currently swims for the Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club and will graduate from Kell High School in May 2020. She will join Loyola’s class of 2024 under head coach Thomas Natal.
Lauren, according to her Instagram, says, “I am thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to Loyola University New Orleans! Thank you so everyone who helped me get to this point #gowolfpack.”
At Loyola’s Mid-South Conference Championships, Thomas would have made multiple finals appearances with her current best times. She would have placed 3rd in the 50 freestyle (24.62) and 4th in both the 100 freestyle (54.04) and 100 backstroke (1:01.41).
Loyola placed 3rd as a team this year at Mid-South.
Not only would Thomas have made finals appearances at conference, but she also would have made finals at 2019 NAIA Nationals with her current best times. Loyola placed 5th as a team, and Thomas would have placed 12th in the 50 freestyle and 13th in the 100 backstroke.
Thomas will begin her swimming career at Loyola University beginning fall 2020.
