Junior Nationals Finalist Keagan Casey Commits to Lehigh University 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.

Keagan Casey, a high school senior who primarily swims for Greenwood Swimming in Worchester, Massachusetts, has committed to swim for Lehigh University in the fall of 2020. A distance specialist, Casey will feel right at home training for the mile at Lehigh; last year at the Patriot League Championship meet they swam seven men in the 1650 yard freestyle, four of which will be around to train with Casey.

“I’m beyond excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic and swim career at Lehigh University! I would like to thank my family, friends, teachers, and coaches who have supported me through the years. I couldn’t be any happier to call Lehigh home for the next 4 years, GO MOUNTAIN HAWKS!!”🦅

At the ISCA TYR Summer Senior Championship over the summer, Casey took 14th place in the 400 LCM freestyle (4:13.59) and 13th place in the 1500 LCM freestyle (16:41.81). At the spring ISCA TYR Junior Nationals meet, he finished in 11th place in the 800 LCM freestyle (8:52.90) and 6th place in the 1500 LCM freestyle (16:51.03).

Last year at the 2019 Patriot League Championships Lehigh finished in 5th place as a team but were only 46 points away from 4th place and 67 points away from 3rd. Casey will join a diverse class of Daniel Unhuryan, Aiden McCurley, Connor Drucis, and Alex Patti as the Mountain Hawk’s class of 2024.
