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.
Jocelyn Zgola, a senior at Greendale High School, has verbally committed to swim at McKendree University.
“I’m honored and excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at Mckendree University! Thank you to all my friends, family and coaches who’s support has helped me get to where I am. Go bearcats!!!!”
Zgola competed at the 2021 Wisconsin Division 2 Sectional, where she won the 100 free and placed 2nd in the 200 free. Zgola also swims club for Schroeder YMCA, and at the 2021 summer state championships, Zgola placed 6th in the 200 free and 12th in the 100 free.
Zgola has USA Swimming Futures cuts in the 100 free and 500 free.
Best short-course yards times:
- 50 free: 24.47
- 100 free: 51.72
- 200 free: 1:51.22
- 500 free: 5:03.31
McKendree University is a Division II school and member of the Great Lakes Valley Conference. At the 2021 GLVC women’s championship, McKendree placed 4th out of nine teams. At that meet, Zgola would’ve placed 6th in the 200 free and 12th in the 100 free.
Zgola could become a major freestyler for McKendree. With her current times, she’d be the team’s 2nd-fastest 200 freestyler of all time, and the 3rd-fastest 100 and 500 freestyler of all time. It’ll help Zgola stand out to be so fast, given that 13 of McKendree’s 21 swimmers list free as one of their strokes.
Zgola joins Natalia Kralova, Ana Cecilia Carvalho, and Taylor Seibert for the class of 2022. Seibert is a diver.
