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.
Alexandra Dicks, a junior at James Madison High School in Vienna, Virginia and a member of Nations Capital Swim Club (NCAP), has made her verbal commitment to swim for Florida State University in the fall of 2021. Primarily a sprinter, Dicks is .38 seconds away from obtaining an Olympic Trials cut in the 50 LCM freestyle.
“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at Florida State University!!! I would like to thank my friends, family, and coaches for helping me get to where I am today! GO NOLES“
At the 2020 Virginia Class 6 High School State Championship meet, Dicks took home a bronze medal in the 100-yard freestyle (50.76) and a silver medal in the 50-yard freestyle (22.74) behind Tori Huske. At the 2019 NCSA Summer Swimming Championship meet, she finished in 19th place in the 50 LCM freestyle (26.91).
Top Times in Yards:
- 50 free – 22.74
- 100 free – 50.40
- 100 back – 55.80
- 100 fly – 56.50
With her career-best times in the 50 and 100-yard freestyles, Dicks will be right in the thick of things when it comes to swimming on relays and scoring points in individual events for the Seminoles at the conference level. She will join breaststroker Rachel Moran as the early commits for the Seminoles’ class of 2025.
