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.
Grant Wolner from Winona, Minnesota announced his commitment to swim at Michigan State University beginning next fall. He told the Winona Daily News: “It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made. The opportunity to swim at a Big Ten school, it’s really humbling. Definitely a dream come true. … Definitely a big weight off my shoulders.”
A USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Winona Senior High School, Wolner is the Minnesota Class A champion in the 100 fly, having won in 49.28 at the 2020 MSHSL Boys A Swim & Dive Championships in February. He broke the MN Class A record with his swim, taking .07 off an 8-year-old mark. Wolner also etched his name in the Class A state record books, along with his Winhawks teammates, in the 200 free relay (he split 20.65) and 400 free relay (he split 46.32) and took home a bronze medal in the 200 IM (1:50.81).
Wolner does his year-round swimming with Winona Swim Club. He is a Summer Juniors qualifier in the 100 breast. Last year at the Minnesota Swimming LSC Senior Long Course Championships, he placed 4th in the 100 breast (1:06.53), 5th in the 200 IM (2:13.50), and 12th in the 100 fly (58.59), earning lifetime bests in all three events, as well as in the 200 breast (2:36.42). He has swim most of his top SCY times since the beginning of senior year.
