Joe Ciriaco Commits to NAIA DI Morningside College for 2020-21

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.

Joe Ciriaco, a current high school senior from Papillion, Nebraska, has committed to swim for NAIA DI Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. Ciriaco will graduate from Papillion La Vista South High School in spring 2020 and join the Mustangs’ class of 2024.

Ciriaco currently swims for the Sarpy County Swim Club and his high school team. He began swimming as a freshman in high school, and his club coach Nick Baker says that Ciriaco has made monumental improvements in only two years.

Ciriaco is a NSAA High School State Championship finalist in the 50 and 100 freestyle along with being a two-time Nebraska State Champion in the medley and 200 freestyle relays.

At the 2020 Liberal Arts Conference with the Mustangs, Ciriaco would have placed 3rd in the 100 freestyle (47.73) and 4th in the 50 freestyle (21.65) with his current best times.

In addition, he would have been seven one-hundreths of a second from B-Finals in the 100 freestyle at the 2020 NAIA National Championships with his current best time.

Best SCY Times:

  • 50 freestyle – 21.65
  • 100 freestyle – 47.73

Earlier this year Liberal Arts Championships, the Mustangs placed 2nd as a team. They also placed 17th at the NAIA Championships and broke multiple school records.

Ciriaco will begin his swimming career at Morningside College fall 2020.
