Fairfield Picks Up Verbal Commitment from Rylie Foley (2022)

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.

Rylie Foley from Bridgewater, New Jersey has made a verbal commitment to Fairfield University’s class of 2026.

“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Fairfield University. I can’t thank my family, friends, coaches and Lori Payne at ACC enough for their help with this process. I also want to thank Coach Bruno for having faith in me and making me feel so welcome! #GoStags #WeGotThis”

Foley swims for Bridgewater-Raritan High School and was named to the NJ.com’s 2021 All-State Girls Swimming First Team after her junior year season. She trains year-round with Greater Somerset County YMCA Storm. In March, she competed at the 2021 New Jersey Swimming Senior Short Course State Championships and picked up new PBs in the 100 free, 200 free, and 100 back. She placed 7th in the 50 free, 7th in the 100 free, 4th in the 200 free, 7th in the 100 back, and 8th in the 200 IM. She also swam the 500 free and 100 fly in prelims, finishing 8th and 16th, respectively.

Her older brother Jack Foley is a freshman on the Providence College men’s swimming and diving roster this year.

Top SCY times:

  • 50 free – 25.01
  • 100 free – 54.43
  • 200 free – 1:57.27
  • 100 fly – 1:00.40
  • 100 back – 1:00.19
  • 200 back – 2:12.90
  • 200 IM – 2:13.50

Foley’s best times would have scored in the top-8 of the 200 free and the top-16 of the 50 free, 100 free, 100 back, 200 back, 100 fly, and 200 IM at the 2021 MAAC Championships, where the Fairfield women placed 4th out of 7 teams.
