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.
Kimberly “Kimmy” Park, a current high school senior from La Crescenta-Montrose, California, has committed to swim for Division I California State University, Bakersfield. Park will graduate from Crescenta Valley High School in spring 2020 and join the Road Runner’s class of 2024.
Park is a current year-round swimmer for Rose Bowl Aquatics. This past year at the East Los Angeles Sectionals meet, Park placed 3rd in the 100 freestyle (52.09).
“I’m very proud to announce my commitment to California State University, Bakersfield. I love everything about the school and their amazing swim team. Not only are they amazing, the academics fit into what I want to pursue in the future.”
This year at the 2020 WAC Swimming and Diving Championships with Cal State, Park would have placed 14th in the 100 freestyle with her current best time of 51.59.
