Mission Viejo Sprinter Lauren Gleason Headed to Cal Poly in 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.

Lauren Gleason of Ladera Ranch, California has announced her verbal commitment to California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo for the fall of 2020.

“I’m extremely excited to announce my commitment to further my academic and swimming career at CAL POLY SAN LUIS OBISPO!! I would like to thank my family, coaches, friends, and teammates for all their support! GO MUSTANGS!!💚🐴#RideHigh”

Gleason is a senior at San Juan Hills High School who specializes in sprint freestyle. She came in 13th in the 50 free (24.37) and 14th in the 100 free (52.77) at the 2019 CIF Southern Section Division 1 Championships. She anchored the 13th-place 200 medley relay (23.63) and the 10th-place 200 free relay (23.63). Gleason does her year-round swimming with Mission Viejo Nadadores. This summer, she lowered her lifetime bests in the LCM 50/100/200 free and 50/200 breast. She has already gone PBs in the SCY 200 breast and 1650 free since the start of her senior year.

Gleason’s best 200 breast time would have scored in the C final at 2019 MPSF Championships. Her best times in all her other events are just shy of scoring (it took 23.56/ 52.01/ 1:54.27 in the freestyle events, 1:06.06 in the 100 breast and 2:07.08 in the 200 IM) at the conference level.

Best SCY times:

  • 50 free – 24.18
  • 100 free – 52.66
  • 200 fly – 1:57.08
  • 100 breast – 1:07.39
  • 200 breast – 2:25.05
  • 200 IM – 2:16.67
