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.
Kernersville, North Carolina, native Katie Herzberger is heading north this fall to continue her swimming career on the collegiate stage, committing to Division III’s Randolph-Macon.
“Randolph-Macon has been on the rise and I can’t be more excited to join Coach Kintzer and the team,” Herzberger said.
Herzberger finished 16th in the 200 IM (2:23.11) and 19th in the 100 fly at the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association 1A/2A State Championship in February 2019.
In 2018, Herzberger was 13th in the 100 fly (1:03.31) and 14th in the 200 free (2:03.28) at the NCISAA state championships.
In 2017, Herzberger was a finalist in the 200 free, finishing eighth (2:07.99), while also placing 11th in the timed finals of the 500 free (5:42.18).
As a rookie in 2016, Herzberger was 19th in the 500 free (5:55.44) at the state meet.
Herzberger swam for Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School and also competed for the High Point Swim Club.
- 100 Fly – 1:03.22
- 200 IM – 2:19.82
- 200 Free – 2:02.70
- 500 Free – 5:32.00
Herzberger’s top 200 free time would have ranked fourth on the 2018-19 Randolph-Macon roster behind freshman Lauren Simonson (1:59.33) and seniors Haylie Moore (2:00.23) and Kate Kyllahen (2:00.32).
Her best 200 IM time would have ranked fifth on the Randolph-Macon roster behind junior Laney Sanchez (2:12.90), junior Abigail Crank (2:13.29) and sophomore Grace Landolt (2:14.76).
Herzberger’s best 500 free and 100 fly times would not have ranked in the Yellow Jackets’ top five for 2018-19.
