Kingfish Swimming’s Ian Arnold Verbally Commits to Miami University (Ohio)

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.

Ian Arnold, a current senior from Natick, Massachusetts, has committed to swim for D1 Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Arnold will graduate from Natick High School in May 2020 and join the Miami Red Hawks’ class of 2024 under head coach Hollie Bonewit-Cron.

Arnold, a freestyle sprinter and butterfly specialist, currently swims for Kingfish Swimming. He is a Summer Junior National qualifier and a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American.

“I am very excited to announce my commitment to study and compete for Miami University! I want to thank God, my family, my coaches, and all my friends who helped make this possible. The coaches, the team, and the university culture are a great fit for me as a student, athlete, and person, and I cannot wait to be a part of the family at MU. #ringthebell #loveandhonor.”

With his current best times, Arnold would have placed 12th in the 50 freestyle (20.89), 13th in the 100 freestyle (46.47) and 15th in the 100 butterfly (51.08) at the 2019 Mid-American Conference Championships.

At this meet, the Miama Red Hawks placed 1st as a team.
