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.
John McEachern, a current high school senior from Newton, Massachusetts, has committed to swim for Division I Georgetown University in Washington D.C. McEachern will graduate from high school in spring 2020 and join the Hoyas class of 2024.
McEachern is a current swimmer for Crimson Aquatics (Boston). The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American placed 7th in the 200 LCM backstroke at the USA Swimming Futures Championships (Geneva) with a time of 2:08.36. He is also a Speedo Champions Series and Winter Junior National qualifier.
“Super stoked to announce my commitment to swim and study at Georgetown University! Thank you to my family, coaches, teammates, and friends for their support. Hoya Saxa! #ppt”
At the 2020 Big East Swimming and Diving Championships with the Hoyas, McEachern would have had multiple finals performances with his current best times. Most notably, he would have placed 7th in the 200 backstroke (1:48.40) and 10th in the 100 backstroke (50.88). Future teammate Drew Carbone broke the Big East record in the 200 backstroke—a record that had been set 8 years prior.
Best SCY Times:
- 50 freestyle – 21.98
- 100 freestyle – 47.62
- 200 freestyle – 1:43.32
- 100 backstroke – 50.88
- 200 backstroke – 1:48.40
- 200 IM – 1:52.71
- 400 IM – 4:00.90
This year at the Big East Championships, the Hoyas placed 2nd to Xavier University. Along with Carbone’s league record, many team records fell and 23 team members were given All-Big East honors.
McEachern will begin his swimming career at Georgetown University fall 2020.
