IL Middle Distance Freestyler Kali Franckowiak Commits To Wyoming For 2020

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.

Kali Franckowiak, a junior at Plainfield Central High School and Maverick Swim Club in Naperville, Illinois, has announced her verbal intention to swim at the University of Wyoming in 2020. A middle distance freestyle specialist, Franckowiak already has career fastest times in the 200 and 500-yard freestyles that would have scored points for the Cowgirls at the 2019 Mountain West Conference Championship meet.

“I’m beyond excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and swimming career at the University of Wyoming!!🤠 I am so thrilled to be a part of such an amazing team with great coaches!! I’d like to thank God, my friends, my family, coaches, and teammates who made this dream a reality!! Can’t wait to be a cowgirl!! #gocowboys #gopokes #onewyo #gowyo”

At the Illinois High School State Championship meet back in November of 2018, Franckowiak took 14th place in the 500-yard freestyle (5:01.84) and secured a place on the podium with a 7th place finish in the 200-yard freestyle (1:51.61). At the 2019 Illinois Swimming Senior Championship meet she finished 20th in the 100-yard freestyle (52.940, 14th in the 500-yard freestyle (5:03.90), and 8th place in the 200-yard freestyle (1:52.01).

Best Times in Yards:

  • 50 free – 24.03
  • 100 free – 52.16
  • 200 free – 1:50.80
  • 500 free – 4:57.49

Franckowiak will be able to make an immediate impact at Wyoming right away; along with having times good enough to score points at conference, she would have been able to make the ‘A’ 800 free relay for the Cowgirls and would have moved their final time from an 8th place finish to a 7th place one. She is the first class of 2024 commit for coach Dave Denniston.
