Junior College Standout Ida Due Sends Verbal to San Jose State

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.

California native, Ida Due, has opted to stay in state after sending a verbal to San Jose State University.

Due, who is from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, competed at the Santa Clarita Speedo Championship Series this past summer. Through her club team, Swim Torrance, she swam the 400 LCM free and 400 LCM IM where she finished with a personal best in the latter. Before a brief hiatus from competition, Due competed at the 2018 CA SMSC Summer LCM Junior Olympics, where she was a finalist in 6 events and clocked best times in 4 of those events (200 and 400 free, 100 and 200 butterfly).

While swimming for Palos Verdes Penisula High School during the high school championship season, Due swam most of her best times. She competed at the 2017 and 2018 California CIF Swimming and Diving Championships in the 50, 100, and 200 SCY freestyle events where she earned lifetime bests in each event with times of 25.15, 54.71, and 1:57.20, respectively. After graduating from high school, Due enrolled in El Camino College as a freshman and during the 2019 CCC-AA Swimming and Diving Championships, she placed 1st in the 500 freestyle and 400 IM and earned 3rd in the 1650. Due also set a CCC-AA record in the 400 IM with the time of 4:30.49.

San Jose State University competes in the Mountain West Conference where the team placed 8th overall at the 2019 conference meet. Due will be an addition to a lonely mile crew at SJSU and fits right into the mix with her 500 freestyle and 400 IM best times.

Top SCY Times:

  • 100 free – 54.71
  • 200 free – 1:57.20
  • 500 free – 5:03.14
  • 1650 free – 17:58.10
  • 100 fly – 1:00.83
  • 400 IM – 4:30.49
