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.
High School juniors Annie Costello and Maddie Seltzer have announced their verbal commitments to dive for the University of Michigan beginning in the fall of 2021.
Costello attends Huron High School located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is also a member of the Legacy Diving club where she is coached by Daniel Gironza.
Last winter, at the 2019 MHSAA (Michigan High School) Girls D1 State Championship she won the 1-meter event, finishing over 20 points ahead of fellow Legacy Diving club member Ciara McCliment.
Costello is also a multiple time USA Diving National Championships qualifier. Last August, at the 2019 edition of the meet, she competed on both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard in the 16-18 age group. She finished 15th on the 1-meter and 19th on the 3-meter.
Seltzer is from Scarsdale, New York where she attends Scarsdale High School. She also competes for the Marlins Dive Club where she is coached by Dylan Korn.
In 2018, at the YMCA National Championships, Seltzer won both the 1-meter and platform events in the 14-15 age group. Last year at the 2019 YMCA National Championships she finished sixth on 1-meter, third on 3-meter, and sixth on platform in the 16-21 age group.
Seltzer also competed at the 2019 AAU National Championships where she was the national champion on the 3-meter in the 16-18 age group.
Costello and Seltzer will be joining a Michigan team who finished second at last year’s Big-10 Championships, falling to Indiana by less than 90 points. Diving was an area of weakness for Michigan as they failed to place a diver in the A-final of any diving event. Indiana outscored them by 39.5 points, nearly half of their total points deficit, across the three diving events.
