Liz Jantausch Makes Verbal Commitment to Cincinnati for 2020-21

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.

Liz Jantausch from Liberty Township, Ohio has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Cincinnati for 2020-21. She will join Kennedy Grotjohn in the class of 2024.

“I chose UC because of it [sic] academics and great swim team. I want to thank my family, friends and coaches for supporting me. I can’t wait to be a part of the Bearcat family.”

Jantausch is a rising senior at Lakota East High School. She had a breakout junior year of high school, finishing 12th in the 200 IM at the 2019 Ohio High School Division 1 State Championships. In club swimming, she represents the Countryside YMCA Torpedoes and specializes in fly, back and free in addition to IM. She competed at 2019 YMCA Short Course National Championships in the 100/200 fly and 200/400 IM and was a B-finalist in the 200 IM. Jantausch recently closed out the 2019 long course season with all new PBs in her top events while swimming at 2019 ISCA Senior Cup in St. Petersburg. She swam in prelims of the 100 free, 50/100/200 fly and 200/400 IM and in finals of all but the free. She also participated on four “A” relays, helping CY finish in the top-8 for the 400/800 free relays and the 400 medley relay and in the top-16 for the 200 medley relay.

Jantausch’s best times would have qualified for the B finals of the 200 IM and 400 IM at 2019 AAC Championships where the Bearcats were runners-up in the women’s team standings.

  • 200 IM – 2:04.63
