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.
Mia Abruzzo of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Georgia beginning in 2021-22. She will join her brother Andrew Abruzzo, currently a sophomore on the Bulldogs’ roster, and future class of 2025 verbal commits Elsa Fretz, Mary Martin, and Rachel Stege.
“I am beyond excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Georgia. Huge thank you to my family, friends, coaches, and @ndaclassof2021 for all the help and support along the way! Go dawgs!”
Abruzzo is a junior at the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur in Villanova. She swims for Dick Shoulberg and Caroline Boland at Plymouth Whitemarsh Aquatic Club and is a 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials qualifier in the 200 fly and 400 IM. As a sophomore, she won the 200 IM (2:00.27) and 100 fly (54.91) at 2019 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships. This summer, she notched PBs in the LCM 200/400/800 free, 100 back, 200 breast, 100/200 fly, and 200/400 IM. She finaled in the 400 free (32nd), 200 fly (23rd), 200 IM (30th), and 400 IM (21st) at 2019 Phillips 66 Nationals.
