New Mexico State Picks up Verbal Commitment from Free Specialist Emilee Ferrari

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.

New Mexico State University has received a verbal commitment from Emilee Ferrari of Annandale, VA. She began swimming in Las Cruces, NM 9 years ago and is excited to return for her collegiate career. Ferrari is in her final year at WT Woodson High School and she swims year-round for Nation’s Capital Swim Club.

I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic careers at New Mexico State University! I would like to thank my family, friends, and coaches who have helped me get here. #goaggies

Ferrari is in her senior year at WT Woodson High School in Fairfax, VA. Last season she competed at the Virginia High School Class 6 State Championships swimming the 50 free. She was also a member of all 3 of her school’s relay teams. Ferrari went a lifetime best in finals of the 50 free (24.05). Her prelims swim earned her a spot in the B-final after she touched 12th. She won the B-final, out-touching Massaponax High School’s Carlie Clements by 0.01 seconds.

Ferrari anchored WT Woodson’s 200 medley relay in a time of 23.37. The relay was led by her sister Jillian Ferrari on back, Kathleen Modder on breast, and Adeline Muras on fly. She also anchored their 200 free relay, splitting a time of 23.49. The team consisting of Jillian, Meghan Murray, and Jacqueline Dobrydney finished fourth. The same four women competed on the team’s 400 free relay which touched 11th. Ferrari led it off in a time of 52.88.

Her 50 free time at the championship meet met the 2019 Futures qualifying time standard.
