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.
Carley Caughron, a current high school senior from Waterloo, Iowa, has committed to swim for DI Iowa State University beginning in the fall. She will be graduating from Waterloo United High School in the spring of 2021 and will join the Cyclones’ class of 2025.
Caughron is a current swimmer for Blast where she is a Futures qualifier. She is a two-time Mississippi Valley Conference Champion in the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly along with holding 6 team records for her team.
At the 2020 IGHSAU Girls State Championships, Caughron placed 2nd in the 100 freestyle (51.17) and 3rd in the 50 freestyle (23.59). Her head high school coach Jeff Kamp reacted to her commitment by saying, “She is one of the hardest working swimmers I have coached in 17 years. She is a leader that shows team spirit as a captain. She is a teammate that helps both the experienced and the novice and all the swimmers look up to her.”
Caughron is also on the cross country team, does CrossFit multiple times a week and is an honor student.
“Coaches at Iowa state have been very supportive during this difficult time being unable to recruit. The coaches are amazing and have a great past. The team is getting better and better every year and Iowa State is overall a good school. I have a really good feeling
about Iowa State. I will be going there to study exercise sciences.”
