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.
Mitchell Meyer of Woodbridge, Virginia has announced his commitment to join the University of Florida team beginning this fall. Meyer, a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, attends Woodbridge Senior High School and trains with the Nation’s Capital Swim Club.
Meyer is a six-time VHSL (Virginia high school) 6A State Championship finalist. At the 2019 edition of the meet last spring he was a finalist in both the 100 back (51.59) and 200 free (1:44.63). Many of his best times come from last December at the PV NCAP Invitational. He hit personal bests in the 50 free (20.90), 100 free (45.30), and 100 back (49.71), among others.
Top SCY Times
- 50 free – 20.90
- 100 free – 45.30
- 200 free – 1:40.39
- 100 back – 49.71
- 100 fly – 49.75
Meyer will be joining a Florida team that has won the SEC Championships every year since 2013 when they broke Auburn’s sixteen year win streak (pending the outcome of this weekend’s meet). Last year’s team in Meyer’s events notably lost Maxime Rooney, who transferred to Texas prior to this season, and Kacper Stokowski, who will be joining NC State following an Olympic redshirt. Rooney was an A-finalist in the 100 fly at the 2019 NCAA Championships while Stokowski made B-finals of the 100 back.
