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.
Caroline Holmes, a current high school senior from Nashport, Ohio, has committed to swim for NCAA Division II Hillsdale College. Holmes will graduate from Tri-Valley High School in spring 2020 and join the Chargers’ class of 2024.
Holmes is a current year-round swimmer for Pau Hana Swim Team and specializes in freestyle and backstroke.
In 2018, Holmes was a USA Swimming Safe Sport Fellow. She helped design and execute the OSI Safe Sport Pentathlon, a meet that focused on the five core values of Safe Sport—respect, accountability, boundaries, culture and inclusion.
In addition, she is an athlete member of Ohio Swimming’s Athlete Committee and USA Swimming National Disability Committee.
“I am so excited to announce my commitment to study and swim at Hillsdale College! The school’s academic reputation is incomparable, and the swim team and program is a perfect fit for me. Thank you to my family, friends, teachers, and coaches for helping me achieve my dream of becoming a college student-athlete! GO CHARGERS!!”
Holmes stands to make an immediate impact upon her arrival at Hillsdale College.
With her current best times at the 2020 Great Midwest and Mountain East Conference Championships, Holmes would have been conference champion in the 200 freestyle (1:52.92). She would have also placed 3rd in the 100 backstroke (57.70) and 6th in the 200 backstroke (2:08.42).
